Miners, Cowboys and Washerwomen: The Worksongs of Arizona with Jay Craváth

January 15, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

FREE

In a narrative and musical portrait of working-class music, Dr. Craváth explores its roots and rhythms in our state. From Hopi basket songs, the Yavapai acorn gathering songs, to the cotton fields of Chandler and the crooked streets of Jerome, songs were companions to the immigrants who explored and built our state. Through performance and discussion, these tales, which reveal so much of the nature and character of a people, are explored.

This program is cohosted by Sounds of Kingman. This is an in-person event.
