Enjoy live Americana music at the Wellsville Creative Arts Center!
On October 28 the Wellsville Creative Arts Center is welcoming the band Driftwood back to the stage once again! Since 2019, they have released their Americana album “Tree of Shade” and are currently touring – thrilled to share this new music with audiences around the country.
Anyone familiar with the Americana music scene knows this Upstate, New York-based band has cut their teeth on a killer live show. With a never-ending tour schedule and a steady buzz, they have built a large underground fan base. With their devout following and a sizable discography, the band’s hard work has also been a huge part of the inspiration for their music. The songs and arrangements have grown out of time spent on the road, growing closer, learning with and from each other and weathering the up’s and down’s of the journey together. “We have a truly special bond creatively and personally. It’s the driving force behind the music,” violinist/songwriter Claire Byrne adds.
With instrumental talents ranging from guitar, banjo, violin, and bass, many of the members can sing as well, thus providing beautiful harmony and depth to many songs they write. Originally from New York, most of their discography is rooted in experiences the members of the band have worked through together as life-long friends.
“I’m struck by the gratitude that making music with my best friends/my other family brings,” says guitarist/songwriter Joe Kollar. “Even our producer (Simone Felice) and the engineer (Pete Hanlon) became brothers in this process. Laying out some of your most intimate moments and showing the rawest version of yourself is both scary and exhilarating but more importantly, it reminds you why you chose music as the vehicle. It’s the ’66 Corvette that will always take me back to the beauty and power of a group of people setting out to make something together.”
Advanced tickets for this concert are $30 and $32 if purchased at the door. Dinner reservations can also be made for the best seats in the house.
