Buffalo Rose, recently won 1st place in ‘Best of Pittsburgh – Best Alt Folk/Alt Country band’, and have just come off a successful summer tour which saw them open for Sam Bush, and The Wood Brothers, as well as sell out four shows, including Levitt Pavilion in Westport, CT, and ISIS Music Hall in Asheville. The band has a new album coming 2/22/22, recorded with Tom Paxton.

Wildly charismatic six-piece folk/pop group Buffalo Rose will change your entire perspective on acoustic music. They take the singer-songwriter tradition to a new level, crafting original songs which are emotive, meticulously arranged, and inspired by a world of idiosyncratic influences that never let a dull or predictable moment creep in.

The Buffalo Rose lineup of Lucy Clabby (vocals), Margot Jezerc (vocals), Bryce Rabideau (mandolin), Malcolm Inglis (dobro), Jason Rafalak (upright bass), and Shane McLaughlin (guitar, vocals) pushes itself and each other far beyond their perceived limits and blends their diverse and atypical approach to songwriting with the desire to see how unique a song can get and still feel like home. They use powerful vocal harmonies, strong playing, and an original vision to operate at every possible emotional level and put on dynamic live shows that are unforgettable experiences. They go from up and moving to sad and sweet and back again, bringing the entire audience along.

This combination of artistry and enthusiasm makes Buffalo Rose one of the most vital and important groups working today. Rather than play the folk music of the past, the band gleefully combines genres and ideas together to move acoustic music forward to a new, contemporary place without ever losing sight of its roots. Fans of Lake Street Dive, Nickel Creek, and Punch Brothers will find much to like in this crew. Anyone seeking compelling new acoustic music needs to join Buffalo Rose in the future right now.
