Thread Name: U. Utah Phillips remembrance-died 23 May 2008
Subject: RE: U. Utah Phillips - 10 years ago 5/23
Thanks for the account of the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Mark Ross.
Anyone video the proceedings? (I'll have a look on Youtube.)
Utah was a huge inspiration for the sort of music that I play and, occasionally perform. Only had a brief chat with him on one or two occasions but am grateful for that.
Over the years I've come across songs that I hadn't realised were written by Utah and each time I'm reminded of just what a great songwriter he was- an aspect of Utah Phillips that sometimes gets overlooked.
