OGDEN, UT — The Ogden Nature Center is pleased to present Bearfoot in an outdoor concert on August 4 at 7 pm. The outdoor concerts at the Ogden Nature Center combine fresh musical talent with an unbelievable summertime setting. Pack a picnic, bring low-rise chairs or a blanket and come enjoy a fabulous night in Ogden. The cost is $17 adults / $10 children (12 and under).
With ten years, major festivals and four albums under their belt, Bearfoot has managed to make quite a name for themselves whilst growing and changing continuously as a band. Bearfoot has singer/songwriter Nora Jane Struthers as lead vocalist. Bluegrass Unlimited says, “You’ll probably hear the name Nora Jane Struthers in conjunction with bluegrass awards for top female vocalistâ€¦and she writes with a clear-eyed traditional sensibility typically seen only in writers like Gillian Welch and Tim O’Brien. Her songs sound immediately like pre-modern classics.” Collaborative, uplifting, energetic, haunting, beautiful, inspired: all words that anyone should feel comfortable with while describing the sound of Bearfoot. The quintet originally formed in Alaska, have made a mark hitting the top of Billboard Magazineâ€™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 musicâ€™s most prestigious awards â€“Telluride Bluegrass Band Championsâ€“ an honor they share with artists Dixie Chicks and Nickel Creek.
Bearfoot is the last concert of the Ogden Nature Centerâ€™s 2011 summer season!
