Moab Music Festival
“This September is a jam packed musical experience that rivals the splendor of our surroundings. Everyone who loves music of any kind will find something to savor,” said co-founder and music director Michael Barrett
Artist performing at various Moab venues include Paquito D’Rivera, Ethel, William Bolcom, Lukas Foss, Synchronicity, Maria Bachmann, Robert Black, Amy Burton, Christopher Layer, Ayano Ninomiya, Axel Strauss, Ian Swensen, Leslie Tomkins, Tanya Tomkins, Paul Woodiel and Eric Zivian.
Venues range from the more traditional (Historic Star Hall) to the scenic (Sorrel River Ranch Resort & Spa, Red Cliffs Adventure Lodge and Old City Park) to the unusual (a “secret” natural concert hall, accessible by a shuttle and short hike).
Unique to this festival are appearances by Ethel; Cuban jazz great and recent White House visitor, Paquito D’Rivera; and previous composers-in-residence, including William Bolcom, Lukas Foss, Lou Harrison, Lowell Liebermann, John Musto, Kenji Bunch and Jon Deak. The festival is topped off with a trip for adventuresome music lovers — a four day raft trip downriver to Lake Powell, enjoying daily concerts along the way.
