Big Band Echoes Christmas Program @ Cottonwood Public Library
Dec 21 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

            Christmas music in the Glenn Miller style will be featured during the Big Band Echoes Christmas show at the Cottonwood Public Library on Friday December 21 from 3:30 to 5pm.

Hosted by former radio personality Jim Ahlstrom, now a Cottonwood resident, Big Band Echoes is dedicated to playing and listening to music from the late 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s. The featured big band of the month will be Glenn Miller with Christmas music in the Miller style. Miller’s only Christmas song he actually recorded was Jingle Bells featuring Paula Kelly and the Modernaires, Ray Eberle and Tex Beneke. This same vocal group will also be featured singing the song It Happened in Sun Valley which the original Miller band filmed for the movie Sun Valley Serenade. The later Miller band led by Larry O’Brien got around to recording two albums of traditional Christmas songs in the 1990’s in the Miller style and will be featured on the program.

Unusual recordings of the carillon (a set of bells in a tower) with big band backup featuring John Klein will also be among artists featured.

Among other artists to be presented include Vaughn Monroe, Anne Murray, Christy Lane, Jim Reeves, Jimmy Dean, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Perry Como, Doris Day, Frank Sinatra, Ray Anthony, Bert Kaempfert, Elvis Presley, and newcomers Michael Buble and Kelly Clarkson.

Pianist Beegie Adair will offer some jazz piano holiday tunes to round out the holiday program.

Southwestern Indian Rock Art Lecture
Jan 10 @ 6:00 pm

Ancient Indian Pictographs (rock paintings) and petroglyphs (symbols carved or pecked on rocks) are claimed by some to be forms of writing for which meanings are known.  However, are such claims supported by archaeology or by Native Americans themselves?  Mr. Dart illustrates southwestern petroglyphs and pictographs, and discusses how even the same rock art symbol may be interpreted differently from popular, scientific, and modern Native American perspectives.

Allen Dart is a Registered Professional Archaeologist and has worked in Arizona and New Mexico since 1975.  He is a state cultural resource specialist/archaeologist for the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and volunteer director of Tucson’s Old Pueblo Archaeology Center nonprofit organization, which he founded in 1993 to provide educational and scientific programs in archaeology, history, and cultures.  Mr. Dart has received the Arizona Governor’s Award in Public Archaeology, the Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society’s Victor R. Stoner Award, and the Arizona Archaeological Society’s Professional Archaeologist of the Year Award for his efforts to bring archaeology and history to the public.
