Utah Phillips – Oct. 16, 1976

Utah PhillipsHard to know what to say about Utah Phillips. A fantastic performer (no one could “pun” like him), who also wrote some great songs, including the bluegrass standard “Rock, Salt, and Nails”. It was a real treat to host him at the coffee house. He left us in 2008, but here’s a dose of Utah live and in person.
