Scythian and The Town Pants rock the Outer Harbor the night before the Buffalo Irish Festival.  Enjoy a night of Celtic Music on August 24, 2017 when Scythian and The Town Pants come to Buffalo at the Outer Harbor Event Space.

About The Town Pants:  With a decades worth of headlining Roots and Celtic festivals to selling out nights at rock venues The Town Pants own brand of Celtic roots rock rebel spans five albums so far, backed up with a legendary live show that’s garnered them fans internationally from New York to Norway.

About Scythian: Washington DC-based Scythian (sith-ee-yin) began over 12 years ago as a bunch of college buddies playing Celtic music in the streets and has grown to be a headliner on the US Celtic Festival Circuit as well as a name in the Bluegrass/Americana Festival Circuit. They found that their brand of high-energy folk music found a resonance that led The Washington Post to state: “Scythian’s enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.”

JOE PURDY

General Admission Event
$20 Advance

>VIDEO<

Joe Purdy, a celebrated singer/songwriter from Arkansas, is most aptly described as a troubadour – the term, as archaic as it may seem, refers moreover to the idea of a communicator of folklore through song – one who travels and tells stories using the effective medium of music. 

He understands that his own live music tradition has as much to do with commanding captivated, pin-drop silence as it does prompting roars. Most notably, however, in recent years the self-described “hillbilly” has come to see the world and his role in it somewhat differently, charting that direction on his latest album, “Who Will Be Next?” where he firmly plants his feet deep in the tradition of folk artists such as Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, and Phil Ochs, applying his unique skills as writer and vocalist as a passionate observer and participant of our times.

McPherson is much more a pioneer than roots resuscitator. He’s knocking at the door of something that arguably hasn’t yet been accomplished—a spirited, almost spiritual hybrid that brings the forgotten lessons from the earliest days of rock & roll into a future that has room for the modernities of studio technique and 21st century singer/songwriter idiosyncrasies that Richard Penniman would not recognize. Let the Good Times Roll, his second album, is a stranger, and more personal affair than its Fats Domino-redolent title might at first suggest, but the name isn’t exactly ironic, either. If you, too, brake for pleasure, you’ll screech to a halt at the enrapturing sound of these Good Times.

For fans of... Little Richard, Wanda Jackson, Benjamin Booker, Brian Setzer

21+ admitted
General Admission Event
$20 Advance / $24 Day Of Show

>VIDEO<

Unlike rock 'n' roll, bluegrass music's boundaries are often defined in very narrow terms and that has caused some bands to carefully consider their place within the genre. But, in order to survive, everything must evolve... even bluegrass. Enter the Infamous Stringdusters, the very model of a major modern bluegrass band.

“At a certain point in our career, there was hesitation in calling us a bluegrass band,” guitarist Andy Falco admits. “These days, we’re much more comfortable with that label.” Banjo man Chris Pandolfi echoes the point: “We love bluegrass, but we have been influenced by other genres as much, if not more. When it comes to making music, we always try to be a blank slate and give new songs whatever they need to come to life. We just try to make something good, something that is true to who we are.”
