Donna the Buffalo’s feel-good, groove-oriented, danceable and often socially conscious music all began over twenty years ago with roots in old time fiddle music that evolved into a soulful electric Americana mix infused with elements of cajun/ zydeco, rock, folk, reggae, and country.

"Donna the Buffalo is known for touring the country remaining fiercely independent as one of the industry’s most diverse roots-music bands and has “earned a reputation as one of the most respected, eclectic and hardest-working acts today,” praises Encore.

LORI McKENNA BAND, Opener: Mark Erelli

Admired and recorded by Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood and Alison Krauss (to name just a few), McKenna is a master at chronicling the small, difficult moments between romantic partners as they navigate their relationships.

Lord Geoffrey presents: High Rock Mountain

HIGH ROCK MOUNTAIN plays mainly traditional bluegrass, with an emphasis on broken-hearted love songs and murder ballads featuring two- and three-part harmonies, with some originals and ripping instrumentals thrown in. We met at the beginning of the 2012 Fall semester at Berklee College of Music through the Bluegrass ensemble arrangement - not that long ago - but we feel like we've been playing together for years.

Keyboard master John Medeski thrives on the unpredictable, a trait that has kept his work with the trailblazing trio Medeski Martin & Wood (MMW) fresh and surprising for more than 20 years.

With A Different Time, his first solo piano project, Medeski once again takes his sound in a completely unexpected direction with his own compositions and improvisations.

Paul Byrom Holiday Show

Paul Byrom is hailed as Ireland’s premier young tenor and with good reason. From an early age, his special vocal gift brought him the attention of music industry scouts and fans alike. The Dublin-born tenor began voice lessons and training when he was just seven years old and later he had the opportunity to study under the legendary Dr. Veronica Dunne, Ireland’s leading lady of opera.
