The Seattle Labor Chorus, Seattle Folklore Society, KBCS Community Radio, RiseUp! Productions present:

A Benefit Concert for

Utah Phillips

Sunday, March 9, 2008 at 7:00 p.m.

University Unitarian Church 6556 35th Avenue NE - Donation $20

For over 40 years Utah Phillips has traveled this country using songs and stories about working people, their struggles, and their triumphs, to remind us of how deep and how strong our collective history runs.

On March 9, the Seattle folk music community will come together to support Utah and his wife and help raise money for his medical expenses. Performers include Fast Rattler, featuring Utah Phillips’ son Brendan, Citizens Band, Rebel Voices, David Rovics and the Seattle Labor Chorus.

The "Golden Voice of the Great Southwest" has been described as a raconteur extraordinaire, a radical historian well-versed in the sorrowful details of the bloodiest social justice struggles of the last century, a hobo, and one hell of a musician whose songs can break your heart and bring your blood to a boil.

Sadly, Utah Phillips has recently been forced to quit performing due to a respiratory condition that causes severe disturbances in breathing and debilitating heart irregularities.

Fans and friends have begun a grassroots fundraising campaign. Benefit concerts are popping up across North America as the folk music community comes together to help one of their own, one who has done a lot for his community over the years. Concerts have already been held in Minneapolis, Cincinnati, Toronto and Winnipeg.

The University Unitarian Church, 6556 35th Ave. NE will host this concert, starting at 7:00 PM. Tickets $20. All proceeds from this event will go to Utah to help off set medical expenses and pay bills. Come and help us to celebrate a new beginning for our old friend.
