Donna the Buffalo
Roots music festival mainstay drawing on country, rock ‘n’ roll, Cajun, bluegrass and old-time fiddle.
Donna the Buffalo draws on a deep pool of musical influences, from country and rock ‘n’ roll, to bluegrass and old-time fiddle, as well as Cajun and Zydeco. In many ways, they were Americana before the term was ever coined. The band has played thousands of shows and countless festivals including Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Telluride, Austin City Limits Festival, Merle Fest, and Philadelphia Folk Festival. Donna The Buffalo has become the house band for closing the events by backing up artists including The Avett Brothers, Keller Williams, Zac Brown, Bela Fleck, John Paul Jones, and Chris Thile. They’ve opened for The Dead and have toured with Peter Rowan, Del McCoury, Los Lobos, Little Feat, Jim Lauderdale, Rusted Root, and Railroad Earth to name a few. Advance tickets $25, available directly from the box office at 207-633-5159. Regular tickets $30 on the day of show and online at boothbayoperahouse.com.
