Folkfaces is a group out of Buffalo, NY that plays a rowdy blend of rootsy Folk, Jazz, and Blues — fusing classic forms with contemporary feelings and irresistibly danceable energy. Their inspiration comes from the mountains of Appalachia to the deltas of Mississippi, the swamps of Louisiana to the Concrete Jungle of the Rustbelt. Specializing in merriment and sticking it to the system, Folkfaces make the crowd dance and the hierarchy shatter.
«Yeah, „folk“ is in the name, but Buffalo's Folkfaces draws from every original American genre and adds a healthy dose of acoustic punk to seal in the cracks. There's blues and jazz; bluegrass, jug-band, and ragtime; and kazoos and washboards. Folkfaces is just a team of young musicians interpreting old styles with original cuts.» -Jake Clapp (Rochester City Newspaper)
