This event is all ages
Equal parts songwriter and storyteller, Buffalo’s Davey O. has been recognized on a national level for his past two CD releases with multiple honors among the “best of“ lists of several Folk & Roots radio stations, and as a 2013 New Folk Finalist at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival. Davey has also earned the respect of his peers for his incredible work ethic, performing between 120 - 140 dates per year, and for his constant dedication to the art of song craft. With a journalist’s eye for detail and poet’s ear for the well-turned observation, Davey O. finds the universal in the particular, turning day-to-day minutiae into dusty paeans to the indomitability of the human spirit. With each tale another slice of life examined.
Davey is looking to build on the success of his previous release “No Passengers,” (2014 Top 25 of 100 albums Roots Music Report, Best of 2014 - WHRW, WAMC, The Sundilla Radio Hour, WMSC, Radio Crystal Blue, WVPE ) with the 2017 release of “A Bright Horizon Line” - his new, full length CD. Joined by veteran folk artists Tracy Grammer (background vocals), and Pat Wictor (dobro), as well as up and coming artists Matt Nakoa (piano), and Eric Lee (mandolin, fiddle), “A Bright Horizon Line” is a collection of 10 tracks (9 original compositions, and a cover of the Crowded House classic “Don’t Dream It’s Over”) – each one taking the listener on an adventure via music and words, strung along the common thread of this journey we are all on. Co-produced with Neale Eckstein at Fox Run Studios, the production values and arrangements are clear, concise, and cinematic in their quality, successfully capturing the elements of both contemporary and traditional folk music.
Porcelain Train is an acoustic Americana duo performing original music from singer/songwriter Tamala Fonda on acoustic guitar and vocals, and Ralph Fonda on drums/percussion and vocals. A unique blend of rhythm and harmony combined with thoughtful lyrics.
meet the bacons
“meet the bacons” are an acoustic duo and their sound is built on strong vocal harmonies with guitar, harmonica and hand percussion.“meet the bacons” play songs by others that have intrigued and inspired them over the years, as well as plenty of crowd favorites. “meet the bacons” also write and perform their own songs, with stories about New Orleans street parades, love cherished and abandoned, memories sparked by misplaced funeral cards, disconnected veterans of war, working musician woes, rye whiskey and the beauty of a love and her colorful dresses. “meet the bacons” are from Buffalo, NY and draw influences from many great vocal duos, like Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, Simon and Garfunkel, Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, and Shovels and Rope. They play music styles that span classic country, rock, bluegrass, blues and folk (more easily described as Americana music). "meet the Bacons" play live at festivals, concerts, taverns, restaurants, patios and parks and wherever the music takes them.
