From the (e)Mailbox Reminder: Ogden Summer Concert Series

Looking for something to do this week? Check out Ogden Nature Center's Summer Concert Series...

Thursday, August 4 at 7 pm
Cost: $17 adults / $10 children (12 and under)
Call it “new-timey,” call it “post-bluegrass,” call it “string band music for the 21st century”—whatever the name, there’s a revolution under way where string band traditions meet youthful creativity; look right to its center, and that’s where you’ll find Bearfoot. The quintet, originally formed in Alaska, have made a mark, hitting the top of Billboard Magazine’s Bluegrass Album chart. Now, as they enter their second decade with a new Nashville home, Bearfoot have taken their place among the best of a new generation of musicians reshaping American roots music. Bearfoot earned one of roots music’s most prestigious awards –Telluride Bluegrass Band Champions– an honor they share with artists Dixie Chicks and Nickel Creek. With ten years, major festivals, and four albums under their belt, Bearfoot has managed to make quite a name for themselves. For tickets or more information visit www.ogdennaturecenter.org or call 801-621-7595.
