American Songline Concert

We had a wonderful time at the Clark Farm, celebrating its spot along the Historic Lincoln Highway. The evening included a BBQ dinner and a vocal concert by the lovely Cecelia Otto, accompanied by local piano legend, Dan Butcher. Prior to the concert, a brief history of Utah's portion of the Lincoln Highway was given by Bob Beaudoin, director of the Utah Chapter of the Lincoln Highway Association. 

Ms. Otto was a pleasure to host and the audience was delighted by her persona, song choices, and of course, her remarkable voice. We wish her well in her journey and look forward to reading about her stop in Grantsville in her upcoming book. 

Thank you to all who came and enjoyed the night with us. Special thanks also go out to those who provided vintage cars, as well as the volunteers who helped make the evening a success.
