Join the Mat-Su band Braided River at the Musk Ox Farm for a unique concert event! Doors open at 7 p.m., when you can view a select group of musk oxen and learn about the project. Then, at 7:30 p.m., the concert begins. 

Bring clothing layers, this an all weather event. Bring a chair or blanket to sit and enjoy the show (or don't, dance the night away!). Pack a picnic if you'd like, bring a beverage to enjoy, but leave the alcohol at home, along with your pets. Remember these are all weather events and ticket sales are final.

About Braided River: Barry, Evan, Sierra, and Eric Barry Johnson has played drums with musical groups since he was teenager. He brings loads of talent, experience, and attention to detail to the band. He also plays in several groups around South Central Alaska. Evan Kopperud plays electric guitar and sings backing vocals. HIs leads borrow from numerous modern and traditional influences, but they also amalgamate into his own unique rich, strident voice. Listen for his high vocal harmonies, lifting the ceiling, and broadening our sound. Sierra Doherty got her start in musical theater as a young girl. She is an accomplished singer and dancer with a love for many genres of music. She sings and plays acoustic guitar, adding layers of harmonica and percussion. Eric Wade's song writing, steady rhythms, and jamtastic solos are central to Braided River's sound and vibe. His favorite guitar trick is to make train sounds, but he also wants his guitar to stay in tune; so, train sounds... not so much. left to right (bottom row) Damian Delgado helps launch the band stratospheric with tight bass lines and, well, you'll see... Paul Morley provides mandolin, mandola, tenor guitar, and mandocello and shares the singing duties with Sierra.
