Miners,Cowboys and Washerwomen: the Work Songs of Arizona with Jay Cravath

April 5, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

FREE

In a lively and entertaining portrait of working class music, Dr. Cravath explores its roots and rhythms. From the cottonfields of Chandler to the crooked streets of Jerome, songs were companions to the immigrants who explored and built our state. Through performance and discussion, this subject, which reveals so much of the nature and character of a people, is considered. Comments from the Ajo Library include: “A program could not be more enjoyable”; Very very wonderful!!!”; Excellent—humor—knowledge—experience—‘the works’”.

This is an event cohosted by Cochise College Center for Lifelong Learning. This is an in-person event.
