8/31/2016 - Bridger Folk kicks off a new season with 3hattrio from Utah’s Zion Canyon Country. Come join us and experience their outstanding musicianship and unique sound--American Desert Music--which responds to the natural world. They express the desert experientially from a daily-ness of watching light off distant mesas and hearing the way sound plays off sheer sandstone cliffs. Then they play music. They don’t over-think it.
3hattrio’s new CD, “Solitaire,” will be released September 9. The concert in Logan will feature many of the groups new songs. An 8 minute documentary about 3hattrio will be released by Radio/Video West in September and the group has just been booked at a prestigious festival in Glasgow, Scotland this winter. This will be 3hattrio’s first European tour.
6/29/2016 - Stokes Nature Center and Bridger Folk Music Society have joined forces to bring you two fantastic acts in one night, Hoodoo and the Robin Davis Duo!
No stranger to Cache Valley music fans, Hoodoo blends ethereal sounds with an Americana sensibility and gorgeous vocals and songwriting. Robin Davis has been a fixture on the Colorado acoustic music scene since his days with the seminal bluegrass band Broke Mountain. He is now bringing his deep, powerful vocals and lighting fast picking all across the country. This promises to be a night not to miss and a beautiful location.
5/20/2016 - We're SO pleased to have the chance to host Eric Taylor for a concert in Logan. Eric is master storyteller and has been one of the finest southern songwriters for the last four decades. Influencing such well-known artists as Nanci Griffith, Lyle Lovett (both of whom have covered several of his songs) and Steve Earle, Taylor tours extensively throughout North America and Europe. He has appeared on Austin City Limits, Late Night With David Letterman, NPR's "Morning Edition" and "Mountain Stage" and BBC Radio. He is a mesmerizing performer whose shows will leave you wanting more.
Here's what others have said about Eric:
- "He's the real deal. Eric Taylor was one of my heroes and teachers when I started playing around Houston in the early 1970s." – Steve Earle
- "I'm always the opening act when I'm around Eric. I love his voice, and he has a great narrative quality and sense of detail. He sort of takes you out of your own reality and into the reality of his songs. It's good writing no matter how you cut it." – Lyle Lovett
- "If you have yet to experience an Eric Taylor concert, if you love the sort of songwriting that changes your perspective while enthralling to the point of making you forget to breathe, if you love storytelling that is never predictable or derivative and akin to the best fiction-writing, if you love guitar work that is never flashy but always brilliant, if you love discovering an artist that is singularly of his own mold, then Eric Taylor is your man.” – Denise Williams, Hillbilly Haiku House Concerts
