“…after the show™”
The DVD contains almost 2 full hours of music by Dolan Ellis, plus reflections on his life and career,
The scene: Dolan’s evening concert is done, and he has gone to a friend’s home for an intimate after-show party, where he plays and sings for a small group.
Act I starts with Dolan’s early career in Arizona, takes him to the national spotlight and the New Christy Minstrels, and brings him back to his beloved Arizona.
Act II is all about Dolan’s Arizona career, and the focus is on his music as Arizona’s Official State Balladeer.
The complete list of songs for each act is shown below. The DVD contains many songs that were not previously recorded and thus are not available elsewhere.
The producer is Bill McCune of McCune Television, who has produced about 80 documentaries and has featured Dolan and his music in other productions.
