Urban Pioneers

The urban folk music revival of the 1960s in Utah, a significant period culturally and historically, was almost
completely ephemeral, fated to disappear with the artists who had participated in it unless somebody created a documentary record through oral-history interviews and the recovery and preservation of historic photographs
and memorabilia. Folklorist Polly Stewart (1943-2013) therefore initiated in 2004 an open ended documentation project to collect and preserve oral histories and materials. Her first interviews were with Rosalie Sorrels and Bruce “Utah” Phillips, and these were reported in an article in the Summer 2006 issue of Utah Historical Quarterly, “Urban Pioneers: The Folk-Music Revival in Utah, 1959-1966.”
