Buster Blue [Band]

Folk music.  It’s just great isn’t it?  You really can’t go wrong with the plucking of an acoustic guitar, the telling of tales that can either be literal or interpreted at your desire, and the soothing sound of a spit filled harmonica.  Yes, the reincarnation of Woody Guthrie inspired train songs and old country love songs is everywhere.  And while this is great, it tends to make it difficult to pick apart the good, the bad, and the misfortune.  That is until you truly find a gem of a group.  And Buster Blue is definitely a gem.

Hailing from the biggest little city in the world, Buster Blue is a distinctive 5 person group of troubadours who were born about 120 years too late.  Their sound is about as organic as you can get.  Buckets, banjos, chains, horns, and a love for telling a great story round out the amazing sound they create.  They exemplify exactly what it means to be a folk group in this day and age.  Keep it simple, keep it fun.  And a bit of raw talent doesn’t hurt either, of which they obviously have plenty to go around.

In the short years Buster Blue has been together, they have managed to scour the earth, performing wherever their feet may land.  They’ve shared the stage with the likes of Rocky Votolato, The Pharmacy, and Finn Riggins, while playing over 180 shows throughout last year, and they show no signs of slowing down.  With their latest treasure trove of an album, When the Silver’s Gone, out now you can find them west of the Mississippi on several occasions.  Check out their tour schedule to see if they are coming to a town near you.
