By Gary Worth
Las Cruces, NM – Las Cruces is gearing up to host one of this region's biggest cultural events of the year. The 15th annual International Mariachi Conference begins next week. It will attract more than 700 young people from across the nation. And as KRWG's Gary Worth reports, they will be getting some expert training in a very old musical tradition.
