Honky Tonks, Brothels and Mining Camps in Old Arizona

Sunday, February 16 at 2 pm — In pioneer Arizona, among the best places to experience the performing arts were in the mining towns.  From the early popular music of ragtime and minstrelsy during the forming of these communities, evolved orchestras, opera and glee clubs—all in hamlets like Tombstone.  Dr. Craváth shares stories and music of a time when performing live was the only way to enjoy the arts. 

Jay Craváth, Ph.D. is a composer, writer, and scholar in the field of music and Indigenous studies. Presented with funding from the Friends of the Prescott Public Library.
