Carl “Buffalo” Nichols is a living anomaly in this ever-commercial world. With a stage name that reflects the rarity and value of his art, he lives to embody in his personal life the values he advocates for in his music. Not even two weeks removed from the release of his Sophomore album “The Fatalist,” his demeanor hardly reflects acknowledgment of its notoriety, focused not on the accolades it has received, but rather on those who have received its message.
Old Settler’s legendary camping and music festival announces the first wave of bands for its 36th annual festival, slated for April 20-23, 2023 at the Old Settler’s Homestead in Dale, Texas.
These 10 acts showcase the finest talents in Americana music, from British-born country/R&B powerhouse Yola, to virtuosic soul/folk trio, The Wood Brothers, to Austin’s up-and-coming traditional blues guitarist, Buffalo Nichols.
