Running Friday, Saturday and Sunday is the Ogden Music Festival, which was slated for Fort Buenaventura State Park, but has been moved to North Fork Park.
Music abounds all three days, but Texas guit-steel picker extraordinaire Junior Brown plays a can't-miss set at 9 p.m., Friday. Brown's live set is a twangy, high-energy, rockabilly treat.
Saturday features a neat mashup of classical and blues courtesy of Corky Seigal & The Chamber Blues Band. That set begins at 6:45 p.m.
On Sunday, Washington bluegrassers Clumsy Lovers headline at 5:15 p.m., while Kort McCumber & High Road offers up some country tunes at 2 p.m.
Numerous other attractive options abound in Salt Lake City, so let's take a look.
Famed indie-folk band Iron & Wine are headlining a 7 p.m. show Friday at In The Venue, and their country-folkie openers, The Head and The Heart, will also play an in-store appearance at 6 p.m. at Slowtrain, located at 221 E. Broadway.
Touring behind "Kiss Each Other Clean," Sam Beam's band has legions of fans who will likely pack ITV and sing along for much of the night to Beam's multiple touching, heartfelt musings.
The Seattle-based Head and the Heart, which were recently featured in Rolling Stone magazine, are fresh off a terrific gig at Kilby Court last month. Seeing them up close at Slowtrain should be a treat.
A fun night of good, sweaty grooves is in store Saturday at The Complex when funky New Yorkers Ratatat arrive for an 8 p.m. show. The after-party starts at Urban Lounge later Saturday night featuring Laserfang and Night Sweats.
