Subject: Utah Phillips Medical Update
From: Mark Ross
Date: 30 Jan 08 - 04:28 PM

Friends,
I just got a call from Utah. He is going down to San Francisco for tests on his heart because he is retaining too much fluid. If they decide to keep him down there they will upgrade him from a Category B to a Category A(for immediate transplant, if they can find a match). He asked me to post this on Mudcat to let everyone know the situation, he doesn't want the rumor mill to be going into overdrive.

I will pass on any messages for him of course. Hopefully the outcome will be for the best.

Mark Ross

My thanks as well Mark. I just caught one of his performances being aired on the University of Washington cable television station. It was recorded when he was entertaining here in the Northwest. JW, one of your Rose Tattoo clan, a close friend of Bruce's and a long time musical partner and friend of mine, mentioned just the other night that you keep in touch with Bruce daily. I'm certain Utah knows this. He's been a huge inspiration and joy to me and so many others. We all wish him the very best in this difficult time. If there's anything that we can do to help please don't hesitate to ask.

Anything we can do for Utah Phillips we should. He is one of the great American poets of all time. If my voice will help, I'd gladly participate in any benefit.

I've organized a few in my time - you just need the space, the performers - preferably a mix of bigger name and less well known folks - and good publicity.

It was Utah Phillips' situation with his heart about a decade ago
which was a MAJOR impetus towards the organization of AFM Local 1000,
so that folk musicians in North America would have some semblance of
the benefits that other working people do. At that time part of the
way the word got out was through the very benefits which were
organized in order to help him get his surgery.

It really helped a lot of people see the point in joining, and it also
caught the attention of the AFM to figure a way to make the folkies
feel welcome.

Utah- It's been a long time since we met- sitting on Rosalie Sorrell's floor in- where else?- Utah. You were a shy young fella pickin on a guitar and saying you didn't play very well. We called you Bruce- you became Utah later, when you left Utah...I'm getting kinda mixed up here, but the point is, it HAS been a long time. In the fifties, maybe? I have enjoyed sharing stages, campgrounds, Northern Lights, jokes, shin-kickings (Sara Cleveland at Fox Hollow),midnight harmonizing...all manner of great-memory things. Remember once when you introduced me as, "And here comes Jean Ritchie, who's gonna play dull-some-more!!!" Ay, if you're going to get a new heart, I guess I'll have to forgive you for that. And also throw my love and good wishes into this big pot we're all beginning to stir, and hope to be able to be there if you ever need me.
Love and blessings,    Jean

Jacqui, I had it stuck in my head that we had a fund-raising link for him a few years ago and it was on his website, but I'm darned if I can find it, now. I've looked at his website and there is an address, so I'd guess any of us who wants to could send a donation and/or buy some CDs. I am sure any of it would help.

we could also do a thread for him, here, as we're doing for Art.

I remember standing in an endless shower line with Bruce and Riki Schneyer (ajacent lines) at Foxhollow, he was endlessly funny. Helen Schneyer brought him to my open mike at Grant's Tomb in DC where he sang hobo tunes and mesmerized the packed house with his stories.

yep, I'd travel far to play a benefit if I could,

Maybe Dan Schatz can get the ball rolling.

A big honkin' festival/concert in a big honkin' city would be great, but a bunch of smaller ones at local coffeehouses and other venues would reach more people. ESPECIALLY if local unions could be informed. There are so many folks singing his songs now, it wouldn't be hard to do that, and the union folks could be a lot more help than anybody may guess.

Jean, I remember Bruce talking about how easy it was to play banjo, and then saying how much simpler a dulcimer was. That was on the stage at Fox Hollow during the day, and he made sure you were around. And Fortunato, nobody EVER told me there were showers there!!!

Well, best of fortune to Bruce. I just heard Rosalie at Cafe Lena the other night, and she spent much of her concert with stories of the old days with him and sang many fine songs of his. He has long been one of my favorite storytellers and poets. I would gladly participate in any benefit I could get to. Transplant technology is pretty advanced these days. Here's hoping for years more of the great gadfly.

I would think a series of benefits in various locations would be doable - those of us in the Philly/New York/Washington/ Baltimore area might easily join forces to make a few benefits happen. There's a good crowd in New England. Four or five performers, both of the well known and less well known variety, could put together a great round robin.

All of that's easily within 600 miles of Kendall!

In less urban areas, maybe local folks could sponsor some "Utah Phillips Song Nights" with local performers to raise funds.

I have two and half kitchens, two guest rooms and can, if need be, sleep a dozen people (more if you bring a motor home and park it on the pad outside). I can get the Stephens Performing Arts Center at the University for $2,500 for an evening (individual performance halls have different prices). Or you can use the second floor of the Portneuf Valley Brewery if you cut Penny Pink in on a little of the action (although she might volunteer it -- who knows with Penny?).

Skywest flies into Pocatello, or you can fly into Salt Lake City and take the shuttle up, rent a car, or whatever.

I'm certain that something could be organized here in the far upper left corner, the Seattle neighborhood. Utah has many fans here. It wasn't too difficult to organize something for JW when he had a similar health issue. I can think of many players that would gladly lend a hand for such an event and a few venues that would host it. Shall I begin by making a few phone calls?

OK, I have taken the initial steps for two benefits in Michigan. One will be on the east side of the State, probably in Ann Arbor where Bruce has many fans. I am shooting for the second one in West Michigan. This is very prelim at this point. I have contacted Matt Watroba and he has expressed interest in helping. This is very preliminary.

This is very sad news indeed. I've made some inquiries about a benefit in the Philly area - I have a good line on a space we can probably use, though that's unofficial at this point. It would be good, though (no pun intended, though Utah would appreciate it) if I were able to sacre up some bigger name folks. I just don't have the contacts in Philly - most of my folkie friends are in DC, New England, or scattered throughout the country.

I'll continue cogitating.

This is from an email from my sister Margie Little in Nevada City, CA.

I hope you all will do as she suggests re: prayers.


"I thought I would pass along to you that Utah is in the hospital in SF. He went down thinking he might have a heart transplant - to realize that he would not survive one, nor a pump implant.
He had a chest port installed Monday and is having difficulty with that. The doctors are trying to stabilize him.
His wife Joanna and son Duncan are there with him at the California Pacific Hospital - Utah has been there for two weeks now. Joanna is exhausted and as she says numb.

So please keep them in your prayers and thoughts.

Margaret

PS Joanna does not know when they will be able to bring Utah home.
He plans on writing a book when he gets home with Joanna taking dictation and doing the editing."

Ever since Utah told me about the DTI watch(some 35 years ago or so), I have been looking for one. Now I love old pocket watches and own a couple of them, but in all that time I've never seen one, and believe me, I've been looking. I've looked at Ball, Elgin, Hamilton, et al, and I have a sneaking suspicion that this may be a fig newton of Utah's imagination. Nevertheless, if someone can find one I can contribute a small amount towards its purchase and delivery to the Old Man. In fact Iam going to be in Nevada City with the rest of the Rose Tattoo at the end of May to honor UUP, TGVGSW at athe Oddfellows Hall(which is appropriate). So if we can find one by then, I guarantee to deliver same to said intended redipient.

If you look at the link from katlaughing the DTI does have special markings. Also what Utah is asking for is a watch with what is called a hunter case, i.e., a closed cover. RR watches didn't have a cover usually, but the man knows what he asks for. If you check e-bay, there are a number of Hamilton RR specials offered.

*sigh*...in 1952, my father, who was a Western Union Lineman, left a genuine Hamilton Railway Special under his pillow in a motel in N. Mexico. We had left the motel only 30 minutes before, so he stopped and called them...

"Why, no...the maid says she didn't find anything like that."

Dad never got over it. He'd had that watch for 20 years.

Now that Utah is home and well we can once again start seriously talking about the watch. Nobody has stepped forward to actually take charge of this effort. Since I brought it up in the first place it seems reasonable that I should do so. So be it.

    As I write this my wife, Ingrid, is doing a wedsearch to get a handle on what a good, gold watch will cost. Knowing Utah's fascination with railroads Ingrid is, of course, looking at watch designs in the image of proper motormen's watches. If you know of a good watch, please, post a link to it so that we can all take a look at it.

    Meanwhile, I'm going to look into the feasibility of setting up a temporary PayPal account (or something like it) for the watch fund so that we can each conveniently contribute to it.

    I'm posting here to make sure that people see it. However, I am going to set up a seperate thread for the watch fund. Please, post any watch related comment there so that we're all, if you'll pardon the expression, on the same page with this thing.

    One more thing. If you are in some manner going to be in personal contact (phone, letter, or whatever) with Utah, Please, keep your mouth shut about this. It would be better if we can keep it a surprise.
