Lake Placid, NY: The LPCA will host a return engagement of the acclaimed music group Donna the Buffalo. The performance will take place on Friday, November 14 at 8:00 PM. Tickets are $20, and are available by calling the LPCA Box Office at 518.523.2512 or online at www.lakeplacidarts.org.
More energized and focused than ever before in their near 25-year career, roots-music troubadours Donna the Buffalo will debuted their first studio album in five years, Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday, in 2013 via Sugar Hill Records. The follow up to 2008’s acclaimed Silverlined, which reached the Top 10 on the Americana charts, Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday, the group’s 10th studio album, proves the band as a consistent steward of Americana music. Their signature sound — traditional mountain music infused with elements of Cajun, rock, folk, reggae and country — is an eclectic and extraordinary melting pot of such.
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, New York, 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 and authentic tracks that make up Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday.
“We tried to do the record and keep in tact the things people love about us,” says Puryear. “We’re really excited to start sharing Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday,” adds Nevins, “because making this record was a very personal process that was also a lot of fun.”
