1891 School House - Arizona Centennial Event

I had the honor to perform some of my Arizona history and mining songs on Feb 14th, at an Arizona Centennial Event.  The 1891 School House Site, near Cordes Junction, was dedicated by a team from the Bureau of Land Management, the Friends of the Aqua Fria National Monument, and a group of local residents.  The historic school site was located on a historic survey map, and developed by a team of volunteers and BLM workers.  I sang my new song "The Spirits of the Agua Fria" in honor of the occasion:  "Listen to the old souls who settled this land, The spirits of Agua Fria, as they make their last stand."
