Honky Tonks, Brothels and Mining Camps: Entertainment in Old Arizona

November 21, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

| Free

In pioneer Arizona, among the best places to experience the performing arts were in the mining towns. Striking it rich meant having disposable income and miners, like the well-heeled of the Gilded Age, wanted to demonstrate their sophistication with culture. From the early popular music of ragtime and minstrelsy evolved orchestras, operas and glee clubs that performed in Tombstone and other hamlets. Perhaps the most popular form of musical entertainment was the concert band, in shells and stages throughout the state. Craváth shares stories and plays music of a time when performing live was the only way to enjoy the arts.
