Life Goes On

By: Laurie Gallardo

To clarify, Buffalo Nichols is the solo moniker of songwriter Carl Nichols, one half of renown folk duo Nickel & Rose. (Today’s featured AMM track is a live pop-up session, busker style, of Nichols performing “Life Goes On.”) No matter what genre Nichols has ever played, he always finds his heart returning to the acoustic blues he grew up with – the genuine, the real deal.

Nichols crosses racial and generational divides playing the music he loves. His heartfelt tribute to the great blues artists before him is writing and singing about his own life experiences – growing up in poverty, experiencing racism – the very stories he would hear in the early blues records he fell in love with.

This is one hell of an opener. Do not miss Buffalo Nichols, on the bill with recent KUTX Artist of the Month Sun June, happening Saturday May 8, at 3Ten ACL Live, 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the music starts at 9.
