Buffalo Rose is a five piece folk band that combines intricate and passionate lyrics with soaring vocal harmonies. Formed in March 2016, this group has wasted no time feeding from each other’s creative energy and musicianship. The members, which include Mac Inglis (dobro and vocals), Shane McLaughlin (guitar and vocals), Bryce Rabideau (mandolin), Lucy Clabby and Mariko Reid (vocals) all contain within them a fiery passion for music that intensifies the sensitivity of their musical collaboration. This energy shines through in their performances as well, where the combination of each distinct voice with the others creates a swirling web of sound and harmony. Paired with evocative and catchy lyrical phrases drawn from life experience and the American lexicon, Buffalo Rose’s songs are ones that you will find yourself singing along to before they come to an end. Currently writing and perfecting music for their debut album, you can find them playing at a show, stage, open mic or street corner around the city!
