LONG GONE -- UTAH REMEMBERS BRUCE "UTAH" PHILLIPS
A concert of the songs of the late Bruce "Utah" Phillips will be presented at the Unitarian Center, 87 4th Street in Ashland, on Wednesday, February 2 at 7:30 pm by four musical artists from and around the state of Utah. The musicians, Duncan Phillips (son of Utah), Kate McLeod, Doug Wintch and Gigi Love, have included Ashland in their West Coast CD release tour.
* Bruce "Utah" Phillips *
The CD, titled "Long Gone", is a regional recording made by an eclectic group of twenty or so artists including former music students and band mates of Utah Phillips, as well as artists who have been influenced by his vast body of work over the years. Many of the songs on this tribute album are regional to the state of Utah and tell the story of the West as "Utah" saw it. Throughout the recording process, all of the guitar work was performed on Utah's old road-worn Guild guitar, the same guitar that Duncan now uses on stage to pay tribute to his father.
Admission to the concert, which is co-sponsored by WILPF (Women's International League for Peace and Freedom) and SOJwJ (Southern Jobs with Justice, will be $15 at the door or $10 with a non-perishable food donation to the Ashland Food Bank. For more information, please call Nancy Spencer at 541-488-1561.
