Abhi the Nomad: The Modern Trash Tour with Atwood

Abhi the Nomad. Rarely has an artist name so aptly described the person and passion behind the music. Abhi spent his formative years roving from home to home, country to country, community to community. This constant movement created a strong sense of displacement in young Abhi, lacking the strong roots that stem from knowing that where you are living is your settled place in the world.

At the same time, it allowed him to gain a holistic worldview where he continuously noticed the same patterns, regardless of the place. Waste. Decay. Trash. That's what Abhi's next album, Modern Trash, is all about. A cry to the planet. The same planet that is clearly crying out to us, to stop the destruction. We can’t save it all, but we can each do our part.

White Right: Meeting the Enemy

The Utah Film Center presents: 

In this Emmy-winning documentary, acclaimed Muslim filmmaker Deeyah Khan meets U.S. neo-Nazis and white nationalists including Richard Spencer face to face and attends the now-infamous Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville as she seeks to understand the personal and political motivations behind the resurgence of far-right extremism in the U.S.

Speaking with fascists, racists and proponents of alt-right ideologies, Deeyah attempts to discover new possibilities for connection and solutions. As she tries to see beyond the headlines to the human beings, her own prejudices are challenged and her tolerance tested. When she finds herself in the middle of America’s biggest and most violent far right rally in recent years, Deeyah’s safety is jeopardized. Can she find it within herself to try and befriend the fascists she meets?

With a U.S. president propagating anti-Muslim propaganda, the far-right gaining ground in German elections, hate crime rising in the UK, and divisive populist rhetoric infecting political and public discourse across western democracies, White Right: Meeting the Enemy asks why. The film is an urgent, resonant and personal look at race wars in America.

Shovels & Rope

As the Brontë sister wrote, “The ties that bind us to life are tougher than you imagine.” Shovels & Rope, the musical duo of Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst, embody that bond. Married for a decade, their covenant extends to blood and beyond: as parents, bandmates, and creative collaborators who can now add the pursuits of festival curators, film subjects, and children’s book authors to that mighty list. Having released four studio albums and two collaborative projects (Busted Jukebox, Vol. 1 & 2) since 2008, Trent and Hearst have built their reputation on skill, sweat, and, yes, blood. Now, with the tough and elegant new record By Blood, as well as their High Water Festival in their hometown of Charleston, South Carolina, “Shovels & Rope: The Movie”, and the picture book “C’mon Utah!”, Shovels & Rope are primed for their biggest year yet.

Michelle Moonshine

"When I first heard Michelle "Moonshine" Gomez play and sing I was literally spellbound. The sultry sound that comes out of this modest and sometimes shy musician's mouth usually ends up stopping people in their tracks at whatever venue she is performing. Her original songs have an upbeat tempo, catchy vocal lines, and great lyical content, but her unique voice is what truly engages the listener at a performance. Her timbre can be decribed as incredibly sweet and whimsical, and yet it is still very saturdated with feeling in a way that makes you want to stop and listen to every word. Even in a song with morose lyrics there is a plucky demeanor to her playing style, an effortlessness that only a natural musician is gifted. Being so young, she clearly has a bright future, it is exciting to think of where she will be in 5 years. All that said, do not miss an opportunity to see Moonshine perform live, it's an experience that is guaranteed to put a smile on anyone's face." -Jordan Young Front man of Candy’s River House Contestant of American Idol
