With a stay at Desert Dove Bed & Breakfast we can point you to many attractions the Old Pueblo has to offer.

As a continuously inhabited settlement for many years, Tucson’s history and culture run deep. Spanish, Mexican, Native and Old West influences are evident in the architecture, lifestyle, traditions and cuisine. Once hailed as a “mini Mecca for the arts” by the Wall Street Journal, Tucson’s art community rivals that of any big city, featuring its own ballet and opera company, professional theater, symphony, more than 200 art groups and a variety of galleries scattered throughout the city’s 11 districts.

Performance Times:  Sunday 12:00PM and 2:00PM

Location: Old Town Artisans complex  La Cocina Restaurant stage. 201 N. Court Ave.

Event Description: Tygel Pinto  from Crystal, New Mexico  started playing the flute to keep a part of himself alive. The part that he was trying to keep alive was his heritage. Once he became more comfortable with the noises that he made he started playing to better understand himself. The inspiration that drives him forward is to bring his music to another level than the norm. He feels that music has taken a turn and is not content with it’s nature. He wants this gift of his to touch the hearts of people and bring them together even if only for a night.

Collin Shook Trio

Wed 3/13/13 – 6:30 PM The hard-driving sound of the Collin Shook Trio is a departure from the Tucson jazz scene. His playing is a fusion between the Hard-Bop of the 60’s and the modern composition of today, mixed with his classical roots.

The Greg Morton Band

Fri 3/15/13 – 6:30 PM
The Greg Morton Band is local to southern Arizona.Greg Morton was born in Memphis, Tennessee. He began to play the guitar when he was around 12 years of age.After sharpening his skills playing traditional bluegrass music, Greg began to apply his talents to other musical styles, including country and jazz. Greg’s travels eventually brought him to Tucson, Arizona. Far from the hills of Tennessee, Greg found that the ‘high lonesome’ sounds of bluegrass music were already reverberating through the canyons of the Sonoran Desert in southern Arizona. Today, Greg plays in various venues throughout southern Arizona.

Miss Lana Rebel w/Kevin Michael Mayfield

Sat 3/16/13 – 12:00 PM
The Portland Mercury wrote that Miss Lana Rebel is “the badass matriarch of local dustbowl country.” It’s an appreciative nod to a songwriter whose presence can cut through the din of a crowded honky-tonk, and a voice that has been likened to ladies such as Loretta Lynn, and June Carter. She is widely known as an excellent country musician and songwriter, though her musical history is not quite so straightforward.
