Utah Phillips — too soon

Utah Phillips has passed away. I found out through the Dan Bern email list and am saddened more than I expected. Perhaps I’d hoped to, one day, see this legend in concert.

I own one CD of his, — the one he and Ani DiFranco did together and perhaps a bootleg as well.

He just seemed so gentle, so kind. And he was only 73. So many more years to live.

  1. It seems that Utah Phillips had been ill for a while — heart disease. I didn’t know that.

    As for Ani — I’ve never gotten into her music. As a fan of Dan Bern, though, I’m grateful that she helped him gain some popularity.
