Utah Phillips

The progressive folk singer and storyteller Utah Phillips has had to retire from performing due to chronic and serious heart problems. In recognition of his work on behalf of working people, several union locals have passed resolutions honoring Phillips and attaching donations for his assistance.

One way that we can help is by purchasing some of Utah's vast catalog of songs and stories. All of his CDs and more information are available at his website.

Utah has begun podcasting. You can also order his CDs online through cdbaby, but prices are cheaper and more of that money will go into Utah's hands if you order directly from him.

Here's the address for CD orders and to send a donation:

U. Utah Phillips
No Guff Records
P.O. Box 1235
Nevada City, CA 95959
