Thread Name: 2 CD tribute to Utah Phillips!
Subject: RE: 2 CD tribute to Utah Phillips!
I was just reading from a Sing Out magazine (I have it in LA and not here in Tucson, so I can't get the issue date) where Utah talks about Kate and her impact upon him and his music.

In the article he spoke of him singing in Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, taking her place as she was under treatment for her cancer. She was, at the time, responding well to the treatment and showed up for the concert. Utah was asked by audience members how she was doing and he said to them, why not ask her she is there! He said that she went at the break to the music table and sold all of his tapes for him. It was a wonderful article.

Again, thanks for doing this.
