Southwestern Folk Troubadour
Teodoro "Ted" Ramirez
February 6, 2015
Ted Ramirez is the premier Southwest folksinger/songwriter, committed to telling the powerful story of his homeland with original and traditional music and stories. He is the Official Troubadour of his hometown Tucson, Arizona and a recipient of the prestigious "Arizona Culture Keeper Award" and the Artist-In-Residence at the Tubac Presidio Park & Museum in Tubac, Arizona and the recipient of many culture preservation awards. He presents a mixture of Indigenous Mexican, European and American music styles framed with personal views into the people and places of the Southwest portion of the United States. He founded the celebrated folk group "The Santa Cruz River Band” a legendary Southwestern folk music band, but now records and performs as a solo concert artist. Ted popularized the term "Southwestern Folk Music" to describe a concert presentation of authentic storytelling and folk music having a foundation of classic Mexican styles, e.g. son, huapango and corrido, mixed with American cowboy era ballads and poetry. The music style is performed by both, solo performers and musical groups using traditional Mexican folk instruments, e.g., the guitar, jarana, accordion, vihuela, guitarron, requinto, flute, harmonica, Mexican harp and strings.
