Ani DiFranco played to a dedicated crowd braving the off and on rain and cooler than normal temperatures Sunday night at Red Butte Gardens.

Although I was a bit unfamiliar with her set, a mix of old and new, describing her own work, she exhibited familiar riffs and that un-mistakable command of guitar.

Some technical difficulties with her speaker monitors caused her to apologize to the crowd - yet she never seemed to miss a chord and I heard no foul.

The music was excellent - classic DiFranco - the crowd subduded - and the weather held off for all to enjoy.
