KRCL 90.9FM and Utah Open Lands Present The Hidden Hollow Concert Series
Free, outdoors every other Friday Night through September 17
Salt Lake City, Utah- July 2010: KRCL 90.9FM and Utah Open Lands have teamed up to host a free outdoor concert series every other Friday through September 17 in the protected Hidden Hollow Nature Area in Sugar House.
KRCL General Manager Amy McDonald and Utah Open Lands Executive Director Wendy Fisher joined forces to help increase public awareness of this protected area, Hidden Hollow.
In 1990, the Kids Organized to Protect the Environment (KOPE Kids) from Hawthorne Elementary School discovered an abandoned park buried under tons of debris in Sugar House. It was to be redeveloped and the creek was going to be buried under a parking lot. The kids teamed up with Utah Open Lands to preserve the area and in 2000 UOL accepted a conservation easement to ensure that Hidden Hollow will be protected permanently.
KRCL’s music director and mid-day host, Ebay Hamilton has curated an impressive line-up of local bands whose music complements the atmosphere of the natural venue. In addition to the performances, Whole Foods Market will grill at each show and donate all profits to Utah Open Lands to help support the conservation efforts.
The series kicked off on Friday, July 9 with performances by Colin Robison and James Shook.
The schedule for the rest of the concert series is as follows:
Friday, July 23:
7 pm John Henry
8 pm Jinga Boa
Friday, August 6:
