A Great Story Teller Is Gone

Utah Phillips- folk musician, achiever, hobo, Korean War Veteran, story teller, labor organizer, and the "Golden Voice of the Southwest"- died on Friday.

I really enjoyed the two CD's he made with admirer Ani DiFranco, especially The Past Didn't Go Anywhere.

Take a look at this video interpretation of "Bridges," and remember a man who will live on through his transcending skill for storytelling.

...and here's Utah himself doing what he did best.
