On July 6, 2022 Red Butte Garden Amphitheatre felt like a concert hall, despite the low back chairs and blankets on the lawn. The crowd welcomed opener John Craigie with rapt attention, not the usual chatty picnic atmosphere that often greets the opening act. Craigie captivated the near-capacity crowd with self-effacing humor and quirky, relevant storytelling. Channeling the late great John Prine, who we lost during the pandemic, Craigie delivered seven well-crafted songs like “Let’s Talk This Over, When We’re Sober (and not in Quarantine)” and “I Am California.” He ended his set with “I Wrote Mr. Tambourine Man.” The goal of any opener is to focus the crowd’s attention as they find their way to their seats. Craigie did that and more. His unassuming wit and charm earned him a garden of new fans in the process.
