Utah Phillips - Making Speech Free

Utah Phillips - Making Speech Free

$9.99

Captured live on May 7, 1999, as part of a Free Speech Teach-In, the inestimable “Golden Voice of the Great Southwest” delivers 74 minutes of his trademark history, humor, song, and struggle. It’s a signature performance that reminds us that we still can be inspired, educated, and entertained while we “Don’t Mourn, Organize.”

“Phillips above all is a consummate showman, a master of the theater… Phillips has a genius for making peo- ple laugh and care at the same time.” —Boston Globe

“If you have never heard Utah Phillips live, you’re in for a treat. He’s fantastic. Unique. You’ll feel better ever after, as you recall him. There’s no one like him.” —Pete Seeger
