Thread Name: Utah Phillips Birthday
Subject: RE: Utah Phillips Birthday
I celebrated the day by setting up a Philadelphia Utah Phillips night for this December - part of the "Long Gone" Northeastern tour with Duncan and Co. I'm thrilled to be able to join them for these gigs - a "bum on the plush" at last!
Saturday night I was playing in Lewes, Delaware, and did three songs by Bruce - "Queen of the Rails," "Ship Gonna Sail" and (of course) "Singing Through the Hard Times." I'd forgotten it was his birthday; I just felt like singing the songs. Copies of Singing Through the Hard Times flew off the CD table.
