Buffalo Rose Live at Cafe Wha? | Sun March 12th | 6PM Doors, 7PM Show

Please note: Two item minimum per guest. All sales final

Buffalo Rose is a wildly charismatic six-piece modern folk/Americana band from Pittsburgh, PA. They take the singer-songwriter tradition to a new level by 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 band released their debut album, The Soil and the Seed, in 2018 and established themselves as a vocal, instrumental, and creative force. Since then, Buffalo Rose has dropped two EPs, 2019’s Big Stampede and 2020’s Borrowed and Blue, opened for the Wood Brothers, Mipso, Pokey LaFarge, Tyler Childers, Infamous Stringdusters, and shared a festival stage with the legendary Sam Bush. The band’s upward trajectory continues into 2022 with their latest EP Rabbit, created in collaboration with Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Tom Paxton, followed by a new full-length LP, Again, Again, Again.

Buffalo Rose's 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.

“Listening to Buffalo Rose is like driving on the open road with the windows down, letting the breeze wash over you. Delicate and wild, thorny and untamed, Buffalo Rose weaves spiraling harmonies and gorgeously layered instrumentation with propulsive rhythms as it creates a mesmerizing wall of sound that leaves listeners breathless. There’s a singular beauty in every Buffalo Rose song.”

— Henry Carrigan, No Depression

“The balancing act that the six musicians of Buffalo Rose achieve is something to be celebrated. The group match each other's energy both in instances of quiet tenderness and rich swells... that vocal blend not only sets the mood for the folk tunes but also makes those dynamic changes seem so fluid.”
