Thread Name: Utah Phillips looks/sounds great!
Subject: RE: Utah Phillips looks/sounds great!
One of the many qualities I enjoy about Utah is that he always remains true to his values. When he was in Vancouver, Canada recently,he visited and sang for the strikers on the picket line. I believe they were with the Seamen's Union. The first thing he did when he arrived in Seattle this last week was to visit one of our newest "tent cities." These are temporary shelters set up in public areas for the homeless. And then during his concert, he described in detail what he saw and spoke to the needs of the homeless. All this from a man who just turned 70 and is in poor health due to heart issues. Bob
