Subject: Utah Phillips tribute CD and roadtrip
Howdy, Over the last year with the help of Kate MacLeod and a dozen or so other musicians from Utah - the state I have been working on a tribute CD for my father Bruce "Utah" Phillips. The CD is set to drop, sorry I mean released, the first of January 2011. My next step is to travel to Maine to visit Kendall Morse. The CD is called Long Gone - the title comes from a song that I wrote for dad as Christmas present several years back.
Here are my initial plans. As a start I will set a target date to arrive in Maine of February 19.
Going out I'm thinking 2/14 Denver, 2/15 Des Moines, 2/16 Chicago, 2/17 Cleveland, 2/18 Albany and 2/19 Maine. Coming home - Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Chicago,
Kansas City, Denver and home (SLC) Of course this is not set in stone. It depends on what opens up and where but it's a starting point.
As a side note. I can handle the winter and I can drive forever. I know it sounds crazy to travel to Maine in February but do to my work it's the only time that I can go. There are so many folks that I only know by name and have yet to meet. I think that time has come. My hope is to fetch up with some of the folks that dad knew and always talked about. It seems fitting that after finishing up the CD I the next logical thing to do is pack up the car and head East. It must be genetic and no I won't be coming in a VW micro bus.
