First Utah Arts Festival headliners: Angelique Kidjo, John McCutcheon, Mountain Heart

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."
