In Nature's Own Concert Hall, Sound Is Forever
It is a rare music festival that requires patrons to sign a risk waiver as they purchase tickets, writes Mindy Sink in the NY Times, but that is one of the peculiarities of the Moab Music Festival, which takes the idea of outdoor concerts to the extreme by ferrying musicians, guests and instruments - including a Steinway grand piano - 15 miles along the Colorado River for a late afternoon performance in a towering red-rock grotto. The festival neatly combines culture with the area's reputation for adventure travel. It's the rare natural acoustics of the grotto that attracts musicians from all over.”
