Outdoor concerts at the Ogden Nature Center combine an unrivaled outdoor setting with fresh, talented musicians! Held in the glen behind the rustic Visitor Center, these summer evenings will find you lounging on a picnic blanket, toes in the grass, sunset in the late summer sky, tapping away to some amazing, live music. Bring your family and friends, a picnic dinner, drinks, low-rise chairs or a blanket, and enjoy an outdoor concert at the Ogden Nature Center.

Kristin Andreassen & Friends — August 11, 7 pm
Tickets are $16 for adults / $10 for children 12 and under
At the door $18 for adults / $12 for children
Kristin’s last performance at the Ogden Nature Center was a riot, so they’ve invited her back, and she’s bringing friends! Kristin Andreassen is a singer, a writer and a percussive dancer who combines those skills in musical performances that are both “inventive” (The New Yorker) and “haunting” (NPR’s Folk Alley). For this concert she’ll be joined by Rayna Gellert on fiddle and Jefferson Hamer on bass. With her 2015 studio album debut Gondolier, Kristin began touring under her own name. Her live show made Top 10 lists at Pop Matters and NPR’s Mountain Stage last year. A 5th generation Oregonian, Kristin currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee.
