LAVA Music proudly presents Dolan Ellis, Arizona's official State Balladeer, in a special program called "Sense of Place" after his newly released CD with the same name. And what better place than in the beautiful Abounding Grace Sanctuary?
Dolan has been Arizona's Official State Balladeer since 1966. He has received many honors over the years, and in 2011, he was inducted into the Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame (AMEHOF). He has written more than 300 songs about Arizona, many of which he has orchestrated to his beautiful large-screen photography. A Dolan Ellis concert is indeed an exciting multimedia event as he uses his remarkably resonant baritone voice, his melodic 12-string guitar, his photography, and his innate ability as an entertainer to tell stories of the Arizona he loves.
Ellis was an original member of the New Christy Minstrels, one of the hottest groups of the early 1960's (and Grammy winners), and he is touring with them nationally again, along with four other original members.
Dolan Ellis will perform at Abounding Grace Sanctuary, 2450 S. Kolb, just north of Golf Links on the west side of Kolb, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Advance tickets are available for $15 online at Brown Paper Tickets. If not sold out, admission at the door is $20 cash.
