Joshua James, Desert Noises, and Paul Jacobsen and the Madison Arm will share the stage this week at the Provo Rooftop Concert Series.

The show is set to be the second of four concerts in the series’ final season.

Utah music scene staples American Fork neofolk artist Joshua James and Provo indie rock band Desert Noises have performed previously at the series and headlined the 2019 Fork Fest revival in June.

“Paul Jacobsen is the one who has been producing the tribute concerts every year, and now we’ll get to hear his own project opening the July show with his band,” Sarah Wiley, the series’ CEO and co-founder, told the Daily Herald in an email.

The concert will take place Friday from 7:30-10 p.m., with the area open to concertgoers at 6 p.m. All Provo Rooftop Concert Series shows are free and take place in front of the Nu Skin building at 100 W. Center St., Provo. More information is available online at
