The concert line-up for the 2014 Utah Arts Festival is starting to take shape, with three acts announcing UAF performances as part of their summer tours.
• Grammy winner Angelique Kidjo, called "Africa’s premier diva" by Time magazine, will perform Friday, June 27. Kidjo’s latest album, "Eve," is her first studio album in four years, and "is dedicated to the women of Africa, to their resilience and their beauty."
• Folk musician John McCutcheon is scheduled to perform on Saturday, June 28. He’s also going to take part in the Intermountain Acoustic Music Association’s Songwriter Academy, happening on Friday and Saturday, June 27 and 28, along with singer-songwriter Kate MacLeod.
• Acoustic jam band Mountain Heart will perform on Saturday, June 28. The band is noted for its mix of rock, bluegrass and other elements — and for an energetic stage show.
