Dolan Ellis Arizona's Official State Balladeer

The theme for this weekends shows is "Cowboys and Indians"

Arizona's cowboys and Indians are legendary. Much of the history of the Old West took place right here, and cowboys and Indians played a large part in that history. And so did cowgirls!

Dolan Ellis will pay tribute to cowboys, cowgirls, and Indians in this weekend's performance at the Arizona Folklore Preserve. Songs such as "Geronimo" (who finally surrendered to the US Cavalry near Douglas, Arizona); "Alice Greenough" (champion cowgirl who retired in Tucson after a 30-year career on the rodeo circuit); and "Ghost Riders in the Sky" (written by legendary cowboy and songwriter Stan Jones and inspired by a monsoon thunderstorm over the mountains of Cochise County); are perennial favorites.

"Arizona is more than a state...it's a state of mind".

Mark Mulligan

Singer-songwriter Mark Mulligan deported himself to Mexico 22 years ago, ditching his gold Century 21 Real Estate jacket for flip flops and a guitar. 12 albums and 4 kids later, he's still calls the Sea of Cortez home, living 4 hours south of the border in beautiful San Carlos, Sonora.

His tropically flavored tunes reflect life on the coast, telling stories and painting pictures of sunshine, sailboats, and white sandy beaches. And his brand new book, "The Three Miracles" (available on Amazon) is a true story of love and faith, with all proceeds benefiting charity.

Mark's guitar takes him not only up and down the beaches of Mexico, but all throughout the United States, as well as Canada, Belize and Costa Rica.
