Utah is a state endowed with many natural wonders from red rock formations to salt flats. And from desert wetlands to columns of mountains forming the basin and range region. When we look closer, nature is everywhere including just outside our door.

The Wild About Utah theme is Trout and Berry Days by Leaping Lulu, a neo-traditional Irish folk band based in Logan, Utah USA. Leaping Lulu plays venues of all shapes and sizes, from small weddings to large stadiums, and entertains at various levels from background music to full-on concerts. Leaping Lulu offers a mix of acoustic instrumental and vocal music, suitable for general audiences of all ages.
We appreciate Leaping Lulu allowing us to use their music for Wild About Utah.
You can find their music in several locations, here are a few:
Since 1989, Kevin Colver has been recording the songs of birds in nature’s wild places. With an emphasis on birding by ear, his recordings have concentrated on bird song and calls throughout the western United States. These recordings have been shared with the public in his Songbirds series of CDs which introduce the birds of major western national parks. He assembled the work of many generous recordists in the comprehensive reference work “Stokes Field Guide to Bird Songs: Western Region.” Since that time his recording activities have expanded to include the audio documentation of wild and threatened soundscapes from the Rio Grande in Texas to the ANWR in Alaska.
We appreciate Kevin allowing us to use his recordings on Wild About Utah
