Peabody award-winning podcast pioneers Sarah Koenig and Julie Snyder, the creators of NPR’s “Serial,” take audiences behind-the-scenes on April 1 to banter about the phenomenon they unleashed. The fastest podcast to reach five million downloads in iTunes history (and now at more than 100 million downloads), “Serial” reflects Koenig-Snyder’s brand new form of journalism – an investigative, free-wheeling approach that takes just one story, which is then drilled down further and further until a more curious story is revealed. Season Two is now underway. Park of the Park City Institute's Main Stage season.

He delivers that oh-so-American sound via banjo, mandolin, guitar, piano, lap steel, and fiddle. The Grammy and CMA award-winning singer has shared the stage and recording studio with the likes of Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash as well as Phish and Steve Martin. And he’s making acoustic music relevant for today’s generation. Park of the Park City Institute's Main Stage season.

Actress, singer, songwriter, musician, and satirist, Nellie McKay wraps up the 2016-2017 season by melding her talents into a uniquely entertaining and poignant, cabaret-indie-pop performance on April 15. McKay and her piano and ukulele have graced the Eccles stage twice in the past – always to standing ovations. Her newest work, “A Girl Named Billy,” is the story of musician Billy Tipton who, upon his death, was discovered to be a woman. A clever lyricist, clear-voiced singer and enchanting actress, McKay expertly walks the tightrope between humor and tragedy with wit and compassion.
