Sometimes the best way to enjoy the Utah Arts Festival is to wander without a particular plan, and see where the music takes you.
The Cricket's wanderings took him to Ghana, Thailand and Jamaica (by way of Salt Lake City).
First, he caught a bit of African Showboyz, four musical brothers from Ghana, who wowed the crowd at The Round (the little amphitheater by the Library) with their west African rhythms. (The Showboyz will perform again a few times on Friday, at The Round and on the Park Stage.)
Then it was dinner time, which was some yummy pad thai and egg rolls from the Skewered booth.
Then, over at the Park Stage, The Cricket enjoyed the soulful ska of Show Me Island, a six-member Salt Lake band.
Where the music take The Cricket next? Well, Salt Lake favorites King Niko is starting up over on the Amphitheater Stage…
