Bio - Arizona folksinger Teodoro “Ted” Ramirez.

Ted was born in Tucson, Arizona on February 15, 1953 and performed as a solo musician since age 11.  He studied music with local music teachers, but credits exposure to Mexican and U.S. musicians and folk singers as the foundation of his music style. 

First influences were the legendary folk singers of Mexico: Miguel Aceves Mejia, Pedro Infante, Cornelio Reyna, Cuco Sanchez and American folksingers: Woody Guthrie, Cynthia Gooding, Bud and Travis, and Lalo Guerrero.

Ted also played electric guitar music as a child: The Ventures, The Travelers, Jimi Hendrix, Link Wray, The Beatles, but when it came to performing he found himself playing songs like Alma Llanra, La Llorona, or La Palomita although; a Bob Dylan tunes found their way into Ted’s song set list. 

Ted is primarily a folksinger, but has written an impressive number of songs whom many consider modern classics: “My Beloved Tucson”, “Viva Tucson”, “Billy Stiles”, “Look To Baboquivari” El Presidio” and “ Northern Star” are good examples.
