Book an appearance by Ralph Estes:


cellphone: 505-980-3280

Usually I punctuate book appearances with several verses from my "Me and Billy" New Mexico State Chautauqua performance, accompanied by autoharp or guitar; including a couple of readings my presentation should run about 15 minutes, before questions and discussion. Compensation for such appearances is not expected.

Some venues prefer to have the full 50-minute "Me and Billy" performance followed by readings from the Autobiography of Billy the Kid, plus discussion. Financial arrangement for such performances would need to be discussed (nonprofit organizations including schools can go through the Chautauqua program procedure at a very nominal fee). Refer to home page for Ramblin' Ralph (Estes).

After an appearance has been booked, you can click here for a color, pdf flyer that can be printed and posted (all over town, hopefully) giving the place and time.
