Tucked away off one of Oro Valley’s busiest roads, Steam Pump Ranch tells a story of the history behind the town. The historical site was once a waystation for cattle and destination along a major corridor for westward travel. Today, the ranch links past and present culture, providing a pleasant outdoor venue for the Second Saturdays Oro Valley Farmers Market. The monthly event features live music, an open-air market, food trucks and activities for kids, presented by the Town of Oro Valley and Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance. The free event will bring local performers in country, bluegrass, western and rock and roll music to the ranch.
She’s Liz, he’s Pete, they are Liz & Pete. Liz Cerepanya and Peter Dalton Ronstadt join musical forces to explore material old and new. Liz’s heartfelt voice with Pete’s haunting harmonies and rich guitar arrangements captivate the mind and tug at the heart. After a few passing introductions in their shared music scene, Liz Cerepanya joined Peter Dalton Ronstadt on stage at Monterey Court in Tucson in the fall of 2019. They had had a brief opportunity to work up a couple of songs, including Rodney Crowell’s Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight, and an instant musical match was realized. The decision to make a record together was easy and quickly Liz & Pete began exploring material including the timeless songs of Alan Garr, songs of their favorite songwriters and singers, new and old compositions by Pete as well as classic songs from his father Michael Joseph Ronstadt’s repertoire. Liz & Pete’s natural element is just the two of them on stage accompanied by an acoustic guitar and the Pennsylvania Stompbox. But often you can find them also accompanied by Ronstadt Record’s own The Co. Learn more at https://www.lizandpetemusic.com/
