We will be in Williams to visit the Grand Canyon and other things 26 to 29 October. Any information re trad/ live music in town during this time would be great.

Williams is basically just the train station and a one street long tourist district. You might check the Flagstaff Friends of Traditional Music...Flag is just down the road as we think of it in that part of the country - 30 miles or so.

well i see they just had October 2 - 3, 2010 32nd Annual Folk Music Festival so there must be some folkies around...

hereis the williams chamberof commerce they might be in the know

Perhaps you would find some cowboy music and poetry of interest?
The Hole in the Ground Cowboy Gathering is a November occurrence
in Tusayan, the gateway to the Canyon's South rim.

Hole in the Ground Cowboy Gathering Grand Canyon, Tusayan Early Nov (928) 638-2901.http://www.holeintheground.org/ This all-ages cowboy gathering preserves the Cowboy Way in story, poem and song.

I am not sure where Sierra Vista is but: Arizona Folklore Preserve features performances by Arizona's Official State Balladeer, Dolan Ellis. and here are the other performers who will be there:
http://www.arizonafolklore.com/Guest_Artists.htm

The Arizona Folklore Preserve is located approximately 20 miles from Mountain View RV Park, south of Sierra Vista in Ramsey Canyon ...

the arizona cowboy symposium is nov 12-14 in tucson...

Pumpkin Fest. Page, AZ Late Oct http://www.harvestentertainment.org/ There is no place in Arizona with more pumpkins in one spot, than the Page/Lake Powell Arizona Pumpkin Festival



Mountain Village Holiday Williams Nov 01 to Jan 31         http://www.williamschamber.com The APS Parade of Lights, Mountain Village Holiday Carolers, fine art shows and lighting contests with live entertainment and luminaries.

(i think they are talking about luminarias here...mexican style
candles that often line the street yard or walkway.)

The Polar Express Williams Depot Nov 01 to Jan 31 1-800–THE-TRAIN

The Polar Express comes to life when the train departs for a visit to the "North Pole." Santa gives each child their own special gift.


in flagstaff, which i think is not far away...http://www.ffotm.net/
the friends of traditional music....they have lots of links on their web page, to old time fiddle, bluegrass and folk stuff as well as dance--contra dance, and more. including irish sessions and jams
there was a folk festival last weekend this is over now,
but the web site might link you to folk music events and performers.
Saturday and Sunday. Arizona's oldest continuing folk music festival and the third oldest continuing festival of its kind in the nation. www.sharlot.org.

More than 250 outstanding musicians will gather on the campus of Sharlot Hall Museum for the 32nd annual Folk Music Festival on Saturday, Oct. 2 and Sunday, Oct. 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The event is Arizona's oldest continuing folk music festival and the third oldest continuing festival of its kind in the nation.

i also saw mixed reviews of 2 bars in the area..sometimes bars are a good source for live music...Rednecks and Sultanas are both listed.

i know this is too much info, but it was fun searching, and it was a
good diversion from patching the roof, which i should have been doing.

Sierra Vista is way south in Arizona, perhaps 30 miles from Bisbee.

For anyone who happens to be in that area, you should try to see Dolan Ellis. Many think he was the best lead singer the New Christy Minstrals ever had, plus he has a great personality.

What great info and what a great web site, it really does work!!. Thank you open mike at least you avoided having to repair my son's bedroom ceiling which I had to do at the week end after he put his foot through it. Too much information though, but we will print it off and see what we can do and experience, when we get to Williams. We are already booked on to the train ride to the rim and a helicopter flight (weather permitting) over the canyon before we visit our friends Bayou Seco in Silver City in November. Not a bad trip for a working class lad and lass from County Durham. So if you want any Geordie mining songs look no further. Gan canny Brian

The last week in October will be rather cool in Williams, AZ.

Expect highs of 62 degrees F with the possibility of drizzle. Lows may be near freezing.

The northern half of Arizona is mountainous, on a par with the Rockies and the Sierra Nevada ranges in some places. It is not at all like the classic low desert with sajuaro cactus.

Silver City, New Mexico, should be warmer. It has one of the nicest climates in the US.

I just got back from the Canyon myself (there were some pretty sorry trad singers on the train, indeed, each one with a sad CD to sell) and while I can't help you with the music piece, I CAN suggest that you make time to take the shuttle bus out to the General Store at Market Plaza -- better and cheaper T-shirts, sox & stuff than at the Xanterra stores in the main area, and the Xanterra store at Market Plaza had better pottery for less than elsewhere at the Rim, perhaps due to the competition.

By the way, when they post at the Rim hotels that sunrise is at 6:15, they mean it's DONE at 6:15 -- you want to be out on Powell Point or Hopi Point at least 45 min or an hour earlier, to get the best views & photos. We were real happy watching the sunset from the front porch of the Bright Angel Inn -- and I got a great shot of about 15 tourists standing there like meerkats, all taking their photos together like some ancient ritual...
