The New York Times called Priscilla Herdman "one of the clearest and most compelling voices in contemporary folk music," and Tuesday, March 19, she brings that famous voice to Utah for a 7 p.m. performance at the Social Work auditorium at the University of Utah.
Herdman is widely acclaimed as an interpreter of other songwriters, primarily folk composers like Bill Staines, Stan Rogers, Judy Small, Eric Bogle, John McCutcheon and even Utah's Dale Marxen.She has recorded six albums, including the award-winning children's album "Stardreamer." Herdman likes to think of her performances as family-oriented but not necessarily "children's" concerts. Rather, her music is about children and subjects of life, love and family relationships.
As the Chicago Sun-Times noted, "she is no mere craftsman but a singer who finds the artistic heart of each tune."
The concert is sponsored by the Intermountain Acoustic Music Association. Tickets are $8 in advance, $9 at the door. Children under 16 will be admitted for $5, with IAMA members receiving a $1 discount.
Ticket outlets include Acoustic Music, Intermountain Guitar and Banjo, Smokey's Records, Great Salt Lake Guitar Co., Wild Rose Mountain Sports and Gypsy Moon Emporium.
