What we’re seeing: Jim Lauderdale & Donna The Buffalo @ The Spinning Jenny
By Vincent Harris
On the surface, it might not seem like country singer-songwriter Jim Lauderdale and jam band vets Donna The Buffalo have too much in common, musically speaking.
Dig deeper and you’ll find plenty of common ground. Lauderdale is quite the musical explorer on his own albums, reaching into roots-rock, folk and more.
And Donna The Buffalo can jam all night, but there’s a versatility in its sound that allows members to slip in and out of different genres just as Lauderdale does.
So really, Jim Lauderdale playing with Donna The Buffalo is an evening of adventurous alt-country/roots-rock/Americana from a group of musical kindred spirits.
