Focus on Entertainment: Nov. 15-21

Rock Pioneers Donna the Buffalo Concert

LAKE PLACID — Rock pioneers Donna the Buffalo in concert, Lake Placid Center for the Arts, 17 Algonquin Way, 8 p.m.

Their signature sound is an eclectic and extraordinary melting pot of traditional mountain music infused with elements of Cajun, rock, folk, reggae and country.

The band will perform from their new album. In creating the new album, founding members and songwriter-vocalists Jeb Puryear on vocals and guitar, and Tara Nevins on vocals, guitar, fiddle, accordion, and scrubboard, joined fellow band members David McCracken Hammond organ and clavinet, Kyle Spark on bass, and Mark Raudabaugh on drums, 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 upTonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday.

The album will be worked at Americana and AAA radio this spring and summer, with the emphasis track being the Nevins penned “I See How You Are.”

Tickets are $20. For more information call 523-2512, or go to www.lakeplacidarts.org.
