Once the rain subsided and sky cleared, Saturday, it was was a perfect evening for a concert and carriage ride to extend summer just a little longer.  

Country Music songwriter, Jacob Sorenson, wrote a song titled "This Old Town" with Producer Garion Wells. The music video to go along with the song was directed by Matt Casey and was recorded on Morgan's historic Commercial Street. 

While filming the video,  Jacob connected with DragonFly Carriages LLC Based in Morgan Utah and the idea was born.

On Aug. 26, with a stage setup at Riverside Park, Sorenson along with local artists  Bethany Sorenson, Kelly Jewel, Salamasina and Emory Arrowsmith performed for locals as they enjoyed food trucks and free wagon rides from Row & Steph Howard, owners of the DragonFly Carriages LLC. 

“It was a perfect night for food, entertainment and wagon rides,” said Row. He would like to give a special thanks to Morgan City for sponsoring the event, all the behind the scenes help from city employees that made it happen and the band members. 

“Just wanted to give a huge thank you to the city of Morgan for helping bring ‘This Old Town’ to life,” he said. “When I originally made the song and then the music video, playing a show in the city was just a dream. I cannot thank Row and Steph Howard, Mayor Steve and all the city employees enough for buying in to the vision and making it fine to life so quickly and in such an awesome way! Also a major thank you to the food trucks, and the community for supporting. It was amazing to see so many members of the community come out to support the arts, entertainment, and food. I know I personally hope to be back many times and to continue sharing in the beauty of Morgan with you! 

“All of the food vendors were successful, the live entertainment went great and the wagon rides were a hit with the kids. Fun, food, family. That’s why it’s called ‘This Old Town!’”

Penny Pincock said that it’s all part of being in a small town. One person knowing another led them to another, turning it into an amazing night in “This Old Town.”
