Outdoors and at the Ogden Nature Center, this event combines an unrivaled outdoor setting with talented folk rock musicians!  Held in the glen behind the Ogden Nature Center’s rustic Visitor Center, this summer evening will find you lounging on a picnic blanket with toes in the grass, sunset in the distance, tapping away to great live music.Always a sell-out, the beloved Australian folk rock band, The Waifs are returning to the Ogden Nature Center with a 5-piece band that’s better than ever. A trip that began in a van in 1992, with the three troubadours playing gigs anywhere in Australia that would have them, has led The Waifs to multiple ARIA awards, platinum albums and successful tours across the world, including opening for Bob Dylan in North America and Australia in 2003.The hard yards in those early days paid off in terms of their career, but also bound the three of them together as friends. The stripped down, cohesive return to their original sound in their sixth studio album release, “Temptation” (2011), demonstrates that for these old friends, true chemistry never fades."There's no danger of mistaking The Waifs' broad Strive for anything less than Aussie, as the Simpson sisters deliver tales of home and heartland - and of missing them - over the infectious amalgam of country, roots, and folk. At this point, listeners see the essential connection - between the band as players, and the band and audience, which is the source of the Waifs' success." — Rolling Stone Details:• Concert begins at 7 pm, with gates opening at 6 pm.• Seating is general admission on the lawn.  Bring your own low-rise chairs, picnics, beverages and blankets.• The concert will be held rain or shine and tickets are nonrefundable.Box Dinners:Box picnic dinners by Union Grill may be ordered when you purchase concert tickets! $11 eachOrders must be placed by Friday, July 26th at 3 pm.Choices include:1.  Chicken Cucumber pasta salad.  Roasted chicken breast, cucumbers and garden veggies served over pasta with a light tangy dressing.
