If you’ve ever been moved by the words and music of the late Utah Phillips, you won’t want to miss this stirring tribute, featuring Utah’s son Duncan Phillips, California banjo sweetheart Erin Inglish, folk duo Misner & Smith, singer-songwriter Joe Stevens, Ben Pearl, Larry Hanks & Deborah Robins, and Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally.
 
“Yes, the long memory is the most radical idea in this country,” Utah once said. “It is the loss of that long memory which deprives our people of that connective flow of thoughts and events that clarifies our vision, not of where we’re going, but where we want to go.”
 
Utah was a singer and a talker, an activist and an agitator, a philosopher and a goad. He strived to create folk songs, songs that people sang and remembered and enjoyed. He wanted his songs to slip into the canon, author unknown. And he wanted his songs to get people to wake up and pay attention, to act on what they saw and felt and knew in their hearts to be true. His words and songs continue to inspire and provoke, and tonight’s tribute is a chance to enjoy the wealth of his work.
