(WOODSTOCK, N.Y.) – Roots-music troubadours Donna the Buffalo celebrate the release of their new album, “Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday,” at Bearsville Theater on Saturday, June 22, 2013, at 9pm. The Traps will open the show.
The group’s 10th studio album and its first in five years proves the band as a consistent steward of Americana music, with their signature sound — traditional mountain music infused with elements of Cajun, rock, folk, reggae and country — still at the core of the group’s work.
In creating the new album, founding members and songwriter-vocalists Jeb Puryear (vocals, guitar) and Tara Nevins (vocals, guitar, fiddle, accordion, scrubboard) — joined by band members David McCracken (Hammond organ, clavinet), Kyle Spark (bass) and Mark Raudabaugh (drums) — convened in a rustic church in Enfield, N.Y., along with co-producer and fellow upstate New Yorker, Robert Hunter (Branford Marsalis). The building overflowed with vibe, and the music poured out as the group recorded take after live take to old-school analog tape, with as few overdubs as possible. What resulted are the 14 organic tracks that make up “Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday.”
