The Legendary Ladies performing this evening include:

Josie Bassett – Homesteader, Rancher and Rustler   1874-1964

Notorious, generous, strong-willed and loveable—mix those qualities together and you’ve got Josie Bassett,

moonshiner, rustler, and homesteader who lived the simple life despite world changes around her. Delightful. 1920’s Western Costume

Lola Montez – Actress and Dancer   1818-1862

Flamboyant dancer and actress, Lola Montez enjoyed worldwide fame while critics alternately praised and railed against her.

Wildly adored by the American public, she reached her height of popularity in California during the gold rush years. Lively and entertaining.

Inductee in Theater Hall of Fame.   Victorian Costume

Anne Evans- 1871-1941 Cultural Pioneer

Born in Colorado, Anne Evans helped to transform Denver into a “City Beautiful”.

She was influential in the founding the Denver Art Museum, Denver Public Library and restoration of the Central City Opera House.

She worked for the recognition of American Indian art, especially in the Southwest. Fascinating.

Inductee in Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame and Colorado Business Hall of Fame. 1930’s Costume
