As Arizona’s Official State Balladeer, Ellis has sung his ballads in more than twenty countries around the world. As an original and continuing member of the famous folk group, The New Christy Minstrels, he has earned several Gold Records as well as being honored with a GRAMMY Award.

“An Arizona Evening with Dolan Ellis: Tall Tales, Lost Trails & Heroes” on March 15, is exactly what the concert title promises: true stories and tall tales, great music, and a heartfelt celebration of the history and people of Arizona. It’s a fun, nostalgic, and thoroughly entertaining trip through the Old West.

Special guest, writer and western artist Bob Boze Bell, Executive Editor of “True West Magazine,” will introduce Ellis, and the two are in the process of “cooking up something” that will be a real treat during the performance.
