Utah Phillips RIP
Here I was, complaining about too many blog obituaries, but it's important to honor those that pass by! That great folk-singer/anarchist/Wobbly/hobo/train-hopper Utah Phillips died May 23 of complications from congestive heart failure. Utah would always rally the fallen, comfort the disgruntled, and show up for every War Resisters League event there was. I'm glad he did the two CDs with Ani DiFranco that introduced him to new generations of musicians and activists. We are with you, compadre.
