Forty musical acts will perform on 15 porches, driveways and lawns—or on our main stage—throughout this Sugar House neighborhood (along with an ocean of food trucks). Join us as Heart & Soul celebrates 29 years of bringing the healing power of music to isolated neighbors along the Wasatch Front. Heart & Soul is a small nonprofit that brings live music to those who find it difficult if not impossible to attend a live performance on their own. Heart & Soul brings hope, healing and joy through live music and the performing arts to people living in institutions or otherwise isolated. We provide over 1,300 live musical performances a year in care communities in 13 throughout the state of Utah."
