Conary Community Arts presents
The Water Tower Bucket Boys (USA)
After 6 years on the road, 4 albums under their belt and multiple international tours, the Water Tower Bucket Boys have been brewing up a storm in the folk music world. The boys have collaborated live with Frank Turner, Kitty Daisy and Lewis, the Red Stick Ramblers and the Foghorn Stringband and shared the stage with acts like Old Crow Medicine Show, Mumford and Sons, Wilco, Pokey LaFarge & The South
City Three and Woody Pines. They’ve toured extensively in the USA, UK and Ireland and have performed live on the BBC, NPR and RTE. Their boundlessly energetic all-acoustic age-old contemporary sound has won them loyal fans wherever they’ve played.
Based in Portland, Oregon these young gents got their start busking on street corners playing traditional old time and bluegrass, eventually honing their sound as a solid dance band playing square dances and bluegrass festivals up and down the pacific West Coast. However, the boys wanted to take the music further and thus, their new sound was born. Loosely based in the traditions of bluegrass, punk rock, blues, Cajun, folk and country their music slides between musical boundaries. Their songs feature tight 3 part harmonies and powerful instrumentals.
Showcasing the band's original songwriting, diverse arranging, and solid playing, the band’s latest recording is Where The Crow Don't Fly, the 5-song EP they recorded at Type Foundry Studios, Portland, which was released to widespread acclaim in 2011.
