Utah Phillips

I am sad to say that the Utah Phillips, the great IWW bard
is no longer with us. Fortunately, I saw him perform at the
Vancouver Folk Festival in '06. He had the people entranced,
especially the younger set. I remember walking to the next
event and a young guy behind me was telling his girlfriend,
"You shoulda been there. There was this old guy who sounded
like Johhny Cash and had real radical songs." For a fine eulogy,
