Josaleigh Pollett

Josaleigh Pollett = Neko Case + The Head and the Heart + Audra Mae

Description, from a review by Tyler Bowles in Salt Artists: 

A writer of heartwarming folk music, Josaleigh was born and raised in Ogden, just miles from Salt Lake City. She grew up in a musical family, picking up an instrument at a young age and quickly developing a desire to create her own intimate brand of folk. Comparable in sound to early Iron & Wine if he had a woman’s voice, Sharon Van Etten if given only an acoustic guitar, or Daughter at their most stripped down, her songs are personal, relaxing, and melancholy. Ironic, perhaps, that she never fails to smile after each song, no matter how blue the tune.

Nick Passey

Nick Passey

For the past seven years, Nick Passey has played guitar with and lent his vocals, wit, and charm to the legend that is Folk Hogan. As many talented musicians have before him, he is stretching out to express himself as a solo performer with a unique and strong story all his own.

Booyah Moon

7:00 PM | Outdoor Amphitheater

Booyah Moon
Booyah Moon is a new alternative band based out of Salt Lake City. With melody-driven, catchy tunes and energetic and playful lyrics, Booyah Moon has a refreshingly fun rock sound influenced by their grungy '90s youth and the rockin' '70s that their parents grew up with.
 
The band started as a few English majors writing songs in a Wild & Angry Literature class for a Social Change Conference. Now consisting of four English grads and one Theatre Design grad, their shared passion for creating stories fuels the flame. The songs range from satirical to startling, but all reflect their stories.
 
Booyah Moon has released their first album, "Landing," and more music is on the way.  Keep up to date with their current projects on their website, facebook, and Instagram.
