THE SWEET REMAINS – June 22, 7 pm
Tickets are $20 for adults/$10 for children 12 and under.  At the door $24 for adults/$12 for children.
 
Listen to the Sweet Remains at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcTtVfm0GDA
 
THE SWEET REMAINS is an unusual band on today's music scene, headed by 3-gifted and charismatic singer-songwriters, each of whom contribute to the writing and three-part harmonies that define the band's sound.

Driven by strong lyrical and melodic writing, their songs easily appeal to fans of modern folk-rockers like Jason Mraz, Ray Lamontagne, and John Mayer. However, it is their lush harmonies that throw back to super-groups of the 60's and 70's like the Eagles and Simon & Garfunkel.

In the fall of 2010, The Sweet Remains conducted their first European tour hitting clubs in Denmark and Germany. In 2011, their song "What I'm Looking For" was featured in various placements including a Subaru car ad campaign and with Eddie Bauer. 
 
JOSALEIGH POLLETT AND THE STRANGERS  - August 5, 7 pm
Tickets are $12 for adults/$8 for children 12 and under.  At the door $15 for adults/$10 for children.
 
Listen to Josaleigh Pollett and The Strangers at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vcBCfCRpHk
 
JOSALEIGH POLLETT AND THE STRANGERS Warm, smooth, folksie... get ready for a local treat!  Josaleigh will play a solo set and a set with her full band including acoustic guitar, lead guitar, cello, bass, piano, banjo and two back-up vocalists.
 
“A writer of heartwarming folk music, Josaleigh was born and raised in Ogden, just miles from Salt Lake City. She grew up in a musical family, picking up an instrument at a young age and quickly developing a desire to create her own intimate brand of folk.” - Tyler Bowles, SALT Artists
 
This year’s summer concerts at the Ogden Nature Center are sponsored by Courtyard Marriott, The Standard Examiner, Joan Evans Ahlf, and the Utah Division of Arts and Museums.
