Cowboy Tales of Sedona Murder and Mayhem

Mike Peach Sedona Museum

Cowboy storyteller and Grammy award winner Mike Peach is a favorite for all ages

Sedona AZ (October 17, 2013) – The Sedona Heritage Museum presents Michael Peach in a special and spooky performance of “Haunted Halloween” on Saturday, October 26, 2013, at 3:00 p.m. in its historic Fruit Packing Shed.

Come spend an autumn afternoon at the Sedona museum and hear ghostly tales – some of which have origins right in our own back yard! Peach will read a classic and comical ghost story by Charles Dickens, and then will share two more true stories about ghostly encounters. Also on the playbill are four of Mike’s original poems; The Hauntings of the Red Ghost (a rogue camel terrorizes central Arizona in the latter 1800’s); The Ghosts of Wilson Canyon (encounters with the spirits of bear hunter Richard Wilson, his dog, and a very angry bear); Little Bill (the true story of an unsolved murder in Sedona’s red rock canyons); and, Waggin’ the Dragon’s Tale (the story of how two Arizona ranchers allegedly killed a dragon outside of Tombstone).

Peach plans to share an anecdote about his mother’s encounter with a ghost at the El Tovar Hotel at the Grand Canyon, and a personal favorite by Gail Gardner called The Sierry Petes or Tyin’ Knots in the Devil’s Tail (two cowboys claim to have met the devil and bested him). The program is centered on encounters with the ghosts of people, furniture, wildlife, and, monsters and demons conjured by inebriation and imagination.
