* THE LIMELITERSTHE LIMELITERS

Time: 7:00 pm

The unique blend of surging vocals, thrilling harmony, whacked out humor and classic folk music of this unique trio continue to earn them their title as The Fabulous Limeliters! The Limeliters launched their career in 1959 at San Francisco’s famous “Hungry i” and before long, founding members Alex Hassilev, Lou Gottlieb, and Glenn Yarbrough emerged as one of the dominant voices of the early 1960’s folk music scene. A string of best-selling albums for RCA Records and frequent television appearances quickly made The Limeliters a household name. Throughout the ensuing years, the lineup has featured several spectacularly talented new members, but The Limeliters have never deviated from the integrity of the fabulous sound that they pioneered. With their energy and enthusiasm undiminished and undaunted, current members Don Marovich, Andy Corwin, and Gaylan Taylor remain as exciting an act as the genre has produced.

* ARIZONA GHOST TOWN ARIZONA GHOST TOWN

Time: 7:00 pm

Tickets: $10 in advance - $15 at door Ghost Town Trail: It is getting harder and harder to follow Arizona’s mythical “Ghost Town Trail.” The trail isn’t necessarily a real place but it is composed of the few images and stories that remain of Arizona’s frontier past. The “Trail” takes the viewer down a path that leads to riches, treasure and murder. Jimmy Pierce was just eating his lunch when he discovered a fortune. The Haldeman brothers were just defending themselves but they became the victims of “The Last Hanging” of Tombstone. Join filmmaker Phil Wenstrand as he follows the stories and lives of the men and women who braved the desert to open up frontier Arizona. Ghost Towns of Old Arizona: In the 1800’s, frontier Arizona was a very hostile place. Forbidding deserts, heat and unfriendly natives made pioneering here as tough as any place in the west. But still there were those who thought the rewards were worth the risk. Mostly they dug into the earth in search of riches. As miners dug, others built camps that turned into towns. The motion picture, “Ghost Towns of Old Arizona,” takes you into some of these interesting and often dangerous places.
