AMERICANA | Driftwood

by

comment

Hailing from Binghamton, Driftwood plays contemporary Americana that reflects a salt-of-the-earth, rust-belt mentality. The band's three main songwriters – guitarist Dan Forsyth, banjo player Joe Kollar, and fiddler Claire Byrne – mix elements of folk with pop, punk, blues, roots, and everything in between, and it all comes together. Bassist Joey Arcuri fills out the low end as the rest of the group unveils whirling vocal harmonies that light up the room. Driftwood wrangles up somber songs about struggling to survive, as well as happy, foot-stomping tunes celebrating the good times.

Driftwood will perform on Saturday, November 3, 9 p.m. at Flour City Station, 170 East Avenue. $17.50-$20. Ages 21 and older. 413-5745. flourcitystation.com; driftwoodtheband.com.
