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.
