Donna the Buffalo
Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday
Sugar Hill Records

American buffalos conjure up images of the Midwest, of vast plains and frontiers, of a young America taking shape, and this is the setting that Donna the Buffalo excels in. Tara Nevins (vocals, acoustic guitar, fiddle, accordion), Jeb Puryear (electric guitar, pedal steel), Mark Raudabaugh (drums), David McCracken (electric keyboard, organ), and Kyle Spark (electric bass) are leaders of “The Herd,” what zealous fans of their music are known as. Stringing together bluegrass, reggae, country, folk, and Crescent City sounds, Donna the Buffalo remain true roots music purveyors, collaborating with artists as disparate as David Hidalgo (Tex-Mex), Mamadou Diabate (kora player), and Bela Fleck (banjo player).
