Thanks so much for subscribing to my email news ... My life and work would be impossible without your support! I had planned a nice newsy letter for you this month, but I'm camping at the Kerrville Folk Festival and I'm underslept and over-sunned ...
If you haven't already gotten it, I hope you'll get my new CD - "Dump the Bosses Off Your Back" - at CDBaby... http://cdbaby.com/cd/annefeeney7 - It's getting great reviews and one of the songs - "How Long?" - is the featured song at Labor Notes this month... http://labornotes.org
I'm off from here to Pensacola (by Greyhound - yes, riding the dog...) for RadioLive! which you can listen in to at
http://wuwf.org/radiolive/radiolive.shtml on Thursday night at 6PM EDT
I'm off to Ireland, Sweden and Denmark for the summer.. I'm so looking forward to it. I won't be back in the states until August 25th. For now, email is the best and sometimes the only way to get hold of me...
UTAH PHILLIPS (1925 - 2008)
How lucky we are that Bruce "Utah" Phillips was so very generous with his time, his music, his humor and his wisdom. He has left all of us with so much. Seventy three years does not seem very long to me any more. I will feel forever grateful to him for the time he shared with me. My heart breaks for his wonderful wife, Joanna Robinson, and all his family and friends. It somehow seems appropriate that Utah's gigantic heart was his weakness... He had a tremendous love for us all. This is the link to the obituary in the New York Times
