The Sunday Concert Series at the Springville Museum of Art is pleased to have Clive Romney perform on Sunday, Jan. 17, at 4:30 p.m. in the Grand Gallery of the museum. This concert is free to the public; the museum is located at 126 E. 400 South, Springville.
Clive Romney is a Pearl Award-winning recording producer, composer, songwriter, storyteller, arranger, teacher and performer and a 42-year veteran of the music business. He plays guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, accordion, percussion, dan tranh, charango, bodhran and various other ethnic instruments as well as some piano. He produces several albums per year in his recording studio, Pitchfork Studios, engineering most of his own recordings. He is comfortable producing music in a wide range of styles, but his musical “home” is in acoustic folk, world, orchestral and oldtime music.
Romney wrote the lyrics for the films “Swan Princess II,” III and IV, the music and lyrics for “Over the Edge at the Grand Canyon” and has had more than 450 original works recorded and published. He counts “Scripture Power,” an LDS Primary children’s favorite, as his greatest musical achievement.
Romney founded and directs Enoch Train, an eight-man ensemble that performs and records folk-flavored instrumental arrangements of hymn tunes, children’s songs and Americana, incorporating ethnic influences from around the world. Enoch Train was the featured performer for SeaTrek 2001, the reenactment of the emigration of 85,000 Mormon converts to the United States by ship, performing on board a tall ship and in Esbjerg, Copenhagen, Gothenberg, Oslo, Greenock (Scotland), Liverpool, Hull and Portsmouth.
Clive has taught Introduction to the Music Business and songwriting at Brigham Young University in Provo and other music courses at the University of Utah and Salt Lake Community College.
