The Heart & Soul Music Stroll shares the healing power of music by bringing music to the streets of the greater Salt Lake community, playing from neighborhood porches and yards.
HEART & SOUL MUSIC STROLL returns for its sixth encore Saturday, June 9th, to the Sugar House neighborhood at 1530 E 2700 S, from 3 p.m. to dusk.
Over three dozen FREE musical acts will be sharing the HEALING POWER OF MUSIC from neighborhood porches and yards surrounding Sugar House’s Imperial Park.
Throughout the rest of the year, many of these performers donate their time and talent to HEART & SOUL, a local nonprofit organization that takes their talents to hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, and other audiences who can’t come out for the Music Stroll. Last year, Heart & Soul provided over 1,100 shows from over 350 artists along the Wasatch Front and Wasatch Back.
Why Contribute to Heart & Soul?
As a small, local non-profit organization, Heart & Soul quickly translates even the smallest donation into benefits for people in your community.
Real People: Heart & Soul serves moms, dads, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, neighbors and friends who often live isolated and monotonous lives.
What a riot. Our last performance at Canyon Rim Care Center through Heart & Soul was so full of joy and energy. All I could do beyond our collective singing was do nothing but smile.
The other day my sister and I were helping a dear friend in California, Helen, to get settled in a memory care facility. Helen doesn’t have any family to look out for her—no husband, siblings or children. She was confused and afraid and we were feeling stressed seeing her and how agitated she was about it. I told my sister I would bring my guitar and would get Helen to sing her favorite song (and one of mine).
I met Gene Sartain at Tenth East Senior Center, a facility that Heart & Soul performers visit regularly. He was accompanied by his Irish flute, a guitar, and a small, elderly dog named Rita who he had rescued. The three of us sat down, and surrounded by residents, we chatted about Heart & Soul, his travels, and what it means to give back.

My memories of Hardin go way back to the Pub in Trolley Square and a loyal following of the Jordan River Uptown Band.
