Free concerts in Ogden, Layton

Thursday , June 12, 2014 - 12:00 AM

Nature and music lovers can attend four free concerts in the next week in Ogden and Layton.

• Synkofa performs 7 p.m. June 15 at the Kenley Amphitheater, 403 N. Wasatch Drive, Layton. 

Synkofa violinist and director Theresa Ellis arranges traditional and ancient songs. The composer/guitarist adds original ideas and music, resulting in a sound with Celtic roots and a gypsy jazz flair.

Patrons are invited to bring lawn chairs or blankets.

• Ogden’s Tunes at Noon series welcomes Gary Stoddard on June 18.

Stoddard, who plays many different styles of music, will make the audience think there are actually five musicians playing when it is actually just him on stage. Look forward to seeing Stoddard loop his keyboard and layer his vocals.

Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or a picnic to enjoy during the lunch hour. The weekly event is Wednesdays at noon, 343 25th St.

• Ogden’s Talent in the Park series is pleased to announce Pasadena, an alternative rock and reggae band from Maryland, performing on June 18.

The weekly concert series always starts at 8 p.m. Wednesdays at the Ogden Amphitheater, 343 25th St. Guests are welcome to bring picnics and blankets.

• Melody Pulsipher is the next singer up at the Oasis Community Garden concert series.

Pulsipher, whose sound has been compared to that of Stevie Nicks, will perform a free concert tonight, June 12, at the Oasis Community Garden concert series. The weekly event always runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays (except July 24) at the garden, 2445 Monroe Blvd., Ogden.
