Utah Phillips’ music has been part of my library and inspiration for many years. Utah died peacefully at his home in California Friday night after a period of illness.
I saw Utah in concert in Ogden several years ago.
Utah’s legend will live forever.
Here is a list of links to articles about his passing:

I was at that Utah Phillips concert myself. I’m sad to hear of his passing. Here’s a link to my post following his concert. http://slcblues.blogspot.com/2006/05/utah-phillips.html.
