2012 Outdoor Summer Concert Series at the Ogden Nature Center

Ogden, UT ––  Outdoor concerts at the Ogden Nature Center combine gorgeous sunsets and an unrivaled outdoor setting with lively, fresh musicians!  Situated on the sprawling back lawn behind the Ogden Nature Center’s rustic Visitor Center, these summer evenings will find you with your toes in the grass, tapping away to music that is newly picked and just now being heard in some of the nation’s top summer music festivals.
Bring your family and friends, a picnic dinner, drinks, low-rise chairs or a blanket, and get ready for fabulous summer nights at the Ogden Nature Center. 

Brown Bird
Thursday, June 28 at 7 pm, gates open at 6 pm

Listen at:
Hailing from Providence. R.I., Brown Bird is a two person acoustic band that plays original, traditional American music in the best sense possible.  Their most recent album was recorded live to tape in Pawtucket, RI.  "Salt For Salt" is the first album by Brown Bird to capture the intense energy of the duo's live shows, surging in waves that often swell into high-spirited, foot-stomping madness.
David Lamb and Morgan Eve Swain write simply,  - a tambourine, a bass drum and the cello often the sole accompaniment to Lamb's cracked, wood-smoke voice.  Lamb and Swain work beautifully together, with his banjo providing a backbone to a fiddle break, and her harmonies an echo of the melody.  
Horse Feathers
Thursday, August 9 at 7 pm, gates open at 6 pm

Listen at:
Horse Feathers’ first album, Words Are Dead, received a Plug Awards nomination for Americana Album of the Year in 2007, and their second,  House With No Home, sold over 12,000 copies, making it one of Kill Rock Stars’ best-selling debut records ever.  The band has spent the last few years touring, and their live shows are characterized by packed houses of silent, attentive crowds listening intently to every note and every empty space.  Their recent collaboration with members of the Oregon Ballet Theatre met with great critical acclaim, and 2012 will bring further touring and multiple summer festivals.
