Call of the West to play AFP this weekend

HEREFORD — If you’re familiar with the Arizona Folklore Preserve, you’ll notice that Call of the West appears regularly on the AFP stage. There’s a reason for that: Audiences love them. We’re delighted to welcome them back March 24 and 25 for two more performances.

Exquisite harmonies, top-notch musicianship and onstage fun add spice to Western tunes, country standards, cowboy poetry, Western swing favorites, and originals.

Besides their lead and harmony vocals, Call of the West members Jeanne Cahill and Jerome Campbell have formidable instrumental skills. Campbell was the 2006 Merle Travis National Thumbpicking Champion; Cahill the 2008 Western Music Association Instrumentalist of the Year.

Call of the West has performed together since 1989, and play a variety of instruments, including guitars, mandolin, steel guitar, concertina, and harmonica.

Doors open at 1 p.m., with performances starting at 2 p.m.

For reservations, call 520-378-6165 or email reservations@arizonafolklore.com. Admission is $15 for adults and $6 for children 17 and younger.
