C Street Brass With Buffalo Rose @ BOP STOP

Join us for a double bill featuring C Street Brass and Buffalo Rose, two bands from Pittsburgh!

C Street Brass began in 2008 as a small project between five friends who are coincidentally the most handsome men ever to grace the earth. Equally as comfortable in the sound world of baroque music as they are in broadway, C Street Brass is as committed as ever to connect lovers of the arts from all walks of life around a highly energetic and engaging concert experience.

C Street Brass was Ensemble in Residence at Carnegie Mellon University from ’12-’15. During this time the group fell in love with the thriving music scene of Pittsburgh, PA where the group is now based. C Street has been featured on a variety of performing arts series around the country including: Corpus Christi Chamber Music Series, Community Concerts Second Series, and Strings Music Festival where they were Artists in Residence from ’13-’17. Internationally, C Street Brass has toured in Tbilisi, Georgia as resident ensemble of the 2012 Traveling Notes Music Festival and in Doha, Qatar in 2014 as ambassadors for Carnegie Mellon University.

C Street Brass is passionately committed to educating and inspiring the next generation of musicians. In addition to their educational work in Pittsburgh, the group has recently held educational residencies at San Francisco State University for the Emerging Artists Residency ’16 and University of South Carolina as recipients of their Visiting Scholar Grant ’13-’14. C Street Brass has also held short residencies at: Peabody Conservatory, Mercyhurst College, Emory and Henry College, and George Washington University.

Formed in Pittsburgh, PA in 2016, Buffalo Rose blends folk, soul, and bluegrass into something amorphously Americana, but decidedly their own. Three prominent singers (Shane McLaughlin, Lucy Clabby, and Rosanna Spindler) provide stunning vocal harmonies over dynamic, engrossing layers of stringed instruments. Specifically, acoustic guitar (McLaughlin), upright bass (Jason Rafalak), mandolin (Bryce Rabideau), and dobro (Malcolm Inglis.) Their sharp sense of rhythmic experimentation and evocative, storytelling lyricism come together for a sound with both shimmer and punch; it’s foot-tapping and breathtaking in turn. Buffalo Rose offers a warm, passionate homage to America’s classic musical traditions, with modern twists that keep things interesting—and damn fun.

It all started with a the song “Mama Have Mercy.” Singers McLaughlin and Clabby, along with former member Mariko Reid, got together with Inglis to record a live take of the song for the FoundSound Songwriter Series. “Before the video was shot,” says McLaughlin, “we knew that this was something we had to keep doing together.”

Buffalo Rose soon grew to include Rabideau and Rafalak, and they released their debut EP, Red Wagon, in November 2016—just six months after their formation. The local response was enthusiastic. Encouraged, they started to work on a longer record. Meanwhile, their captivating stage presence and strong musicianship scored them lineup spots alongside national acts such as The Infamous Stringdusters, The Dustbowl Revival, Yarn, Kuinka, and Dangermuffin. Their first full-length album, The Soil and the Seed, was released on March 30th, 2018. It received glowing attention from Pittsburgh media, including features on radio stations 91.3 WYEP, 102.5 WDVE and Pittsburgh Pirates "Friday Night Rocks".

With the recent addition of Rosanna Spindler in the Fall of 2018 the band released a single, 'Rocketship' in March 2019, the band has been working hard in their studio recording more material for a new album and continues to book shows both locally and across state lines. With any luck, you’ll soon hear their catchy ‘soul-grass’ style at a venue near you.
