Bob Garfield

Co-host of NPR’s Peabody Award-Winning program, “On the Media,” and also the author of five books including, Waking Up Screaming from the American Dream. Bob Garfield performs his brand-new one-man show, “Ruggedly Jewish.” Using his own quirks as a backdrop —“Not only am I not all that rugged, I’m not especially Jewish,” he says— Garfield takes us through a narrative that is equal parts raw, wistful, hilarious and disturbing. A crazy-quilt 90-minute multimedia experience, Ruggedly Jewish bounces from harrowing life-and- death moments to oddball folks galore.


Radio Moscow

RADIO MOSCOW are a perfect example of the classic full-throttle power trio. Though by no means devoid of nuance and detail, the first thing one notices while standing in front of the band as they begin to unleash their stage show, is the feeling of being blown back by a whirlwind of energy and power, concocted by three guys locked in a groove.

Fighting Serious Crimes: Strategies and Tactics for Conflict-Affected Societies

Join the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy for the Ambassador John Price & Marcia Price World Affairs Lecture Series. We are thrilled to welcome Ms. Colette Rausch who will explore how serious crimes – such as violent extremism, political violence, organized crime, and corruption – fuel violent conflict and thwart peace-building efforts utilizing her recently published book, Fighting Serious Crimes: Strategies and Tactics for Conflict-Affected Societies as a reference. She will discuss how fragile states with weak institutions and governance are unable to stem the tide these threats pose to peace with dangerous consequences all too evident across the globe. Ms. Rausch will answer questions including what can be done to address violent extremism and strengthen the rule of law, and how individuals can serve as peace builders in their communities. Additionally, you are invited to join UCCD for a public meet and greet reception with Ms. Colette Rausch at 6:00 pm before the lecture begins at 7:00 pm. This lecture is FREE and open to the public, but please register at https://serious-crimes.eventbrite.com For additional questions, please contact Felecia Maxfield-Barrett at fmbarrett@utahdiplomacy.org | 801.832.3273 | utahdiplomacy.org

The Motet

A concert or an album can unlock another world, if you let it. The Motet respect and revere this time-honored phenomenon. Fusing fiery funk, simmering soul, and improvisational inventiveness, the Denver, CO seven-piece—Lyle Divinsky [vocals], Dave Watts [drums], Joey Porter [keyboards], Garrett Sayers [bass], Ryan Jalbert [guitar], Gabriel Mervine [trumpet], and Drew Sayers [saxophone]—have continually provided an escape for listeners over the course of seven full-length albums since 1998, including their latest release Totem and with an upcoming 2018 release. That extends to countless sold out shows and festivals everywhere from Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, and Summer Camp to All Good Music Festival and High Sierra Music Festival as well as 16 consecutive years of themed Halloween concerts.

Margo Price

A lot can change in a year: markets boom and bust, trends come and go, presidents get elected. In 2015, Margo Price was a country underdog just trying to keep enough gas in the tank to get to the next gig, but by the end of 2016, she was one of the genre’s most celebrated new artists and a ubiquitous presence on late night television and at major festivals around the world. She’s showing no signs of slowing down in 2017, capping an incredible summer of touring with the release of ‘Weakness,’ a surprise new four-song EP out on now Third Man Records.
