A summer strong hold in Park City has been live music – but due to COVID-19, large outdoor gatherings won’t be happening this year. Still, Mountain Town Music is busy working on plans to bring the music to the people.

Most summers, Mountain Town Music programs more than 300 musical acts during the summer months. While that won’t happen this year, Executive Director Brian Richards is hopeful that there will be music in the mountains. Situations like this he says require them to stay positive and think creatively.

A celebration of Michael Richards will be held at City Park Saturday, September 14 at 4 p.m. Anyone who knew Mike, or the RichPotts and Lamb families is welcome to attend. Mike collapsed last Saturday while working at the Mountain Town Music Family picnic and never regained consciousness. He was the youngest member of the organization and a key part of their operations.


Tonight, kicks off the first of the Wednesday night mountain town community concert series at Deer Valley – but due to late snow melt and the recent rain – the venue had to be been moved. KPCW’s Leslie Thatcher explains.

Despite efforts to remove the snow from the Deer Valley amphitheater, a wet spring means the Muddpuddle concert would literally be in a mud puddle and needed to be moved to the top parking lot.  Deer Valley Resort Spokeswoman Emily Summers says they gave it their best shot.

On today's Morning Mix, guitarist Kris Lager of the Kris Lager Band will be our in-studio musical guest. Brian Richards, Executive Director of Mountain Town Music will be in to discuss the local non-profit’s winter programming; and Junior Richard, Venue Manager for The Cabin will be on to announce their schedule of special events during the 10 days and nights of the Sundance Film Festival. All that and of course we will have the upcoming live music events in and around town.

If you go to an event in Park City or Summit County this summer and hear live music, chances are Mountain Town Music was involved. David Boyle has more:
