Music in The Stacks
Thursday September 13
Camp Verde Library
5:30 – 7:30 pm
There is a thriving folk scene in Camp Verde! Every few months, I have been invited to join my fellow singer-songwriters at the Camp Verde Library for a wonderful evening of music. Hosted by Gary Simpkins, Larry Latour, and Mike McReynolds, this ongoing gathering features 4-5 musicians in a round robin format … we each perform a song and we keep going around the circle until we run out of time. Sometimes we all jump in to back each other up. It is always different, fun, and musically diverse with lots of synergy and good music.

Our favorite Prescott bistro! Gather up some friends and come on down. Barry, Terri and the gang do a great job with tasty tapas and a warm, welcoming environment overlooking the creek. This place gets very busy, so be sure and make reservations in advance. Ask to be seated by the music on the covered patio.

Jo B. & Walton performing Sunday, October 7th at 2:30 pm in the Amphitheater
In 2018 the Sharlot Hall Museum Folk Festival celebrates its 40th Anniversary! This is Arizona’s longest-running folk music festival and features musicians performing on four stages. The Sharlot Hall Museum grounds are lovely with lots of historic buildings to explore. In the course of a day, you can hear lots of different styles of folk music and there are plenty of opportunities to jam around the grounds – the porch on the historic Territorial Governor’s Mansion has proven to be a popular venue year after year. Throughout the two-day event, workshops on a wide range of musical subjects will be conducted by the performers and group members.
Sharlot Hall Museum, 415 W. Gurley Street – two blocks west of the Courthouse Plaza
Admission: $10 daily, general admission; $8 for Museum members; youth 17 and under are FREE.
