Comprised of Arthur Buezo (Guitar, Vocals), Christian Cardiello (Bass), Eric Munley (Mandolin, Vocals) and James Ford (Banjo, Vocals), Blind Owl Band officially formed in 2011 in Saranac Lake, NY in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. The band views their traditional arrangement as just the start of the musical concept. "We use the instruments of our ancestors, but play music of our time. We hope we can achieve a unique personal sound through a raw instrumentation...To take a basic approach and expanded it to a sound all its own.” And that it is - explosive, driving and extremely danceable. Since releasing their debut album "Rabble Rousing," the group has toured extensively, playing over 200 shows with names like:Trampled By Turtles, Railroad Earth, Hot Day at The Zoo, Floodwood, Jatoba, Driftwood, Cabinet, Lucid, Big Leg Emma, The Bloodroots Barter, Gold Town, Eastbound Jesus, The Mallett Brothers and more. Their most recent album, "This Train We Ride Is Made of Wood and Steel" is sure to bring them many, many more. WEBSITEVIDEOLISTEN Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
