The event is organized by Old Town Center for the Arts and Wendy Harford. River organizations will be on hand to provide information about preserving and protecting the Verde River Basin and Oak Creek.

“The concert will feature some of the region’s best musicians,” OTCA co-Director William Eaton commented. “The music will celebrate the river organizations and the City of Cottonwood for the work they do to preserve and protect the river and for local water management.”

Musicians will all take the stage to play “river” song covers and original music inspired by the river and the life sustaining aspect of rain and water cycles.

“The Verde River and Oak Creek are two of the only remaining year around rivers in all of Arizona,” co-Director of OTCA William Eaton commented. “Yet, as some experts have acknowledged, we are using more surface and groundwater than is being naturally replenished back into the watershed. Awareness and education about this situation is critical and fortunately there are many individuals, groups and organizations dedicated to preserving and protecting these waterways. The concert will be a lot of fun and entertaining and also be a vehicle to spread awareness about these groups, their goals and visions, and how each of us can become better stewards of this beautiful valley, individually and collectively.”
