Buffalo Nichols Announces 14 Date Headlining Tour

Buffalo Nichols today announced a 14-date headline tour in March and April in support of his acclaimed self-titled debut album, out now via Fat Possum. The run will follow a January/February tour supporting Houndmouth and will precede Nichols’ May tour supporting Valerie June. In March, he is also confirmed to perform at the Savannah Stopover festival as well as at Pelham, TN’s The Caverns for a sold-out taping of PBS’s Bluegrass Underground. A current itinerary is below and tickets for Nichols’ March/April headline tour will go on-sale this Friday, January 14th at 10am CT.

Carl “Buffalo” Nichols—raised in Milwaukee, WI, and currently based in Austin, TX—has also shared a live video of “These Things (Live From Mississippi),” a track from his debut LP released on October 15th. Check it out below..

Since his earliest infatuations with guitar, Nichols has asked himself the same question: How can I bring the blues of the past into the future? After cutting his teeth between a Baptist church and bars in Milwaukee, it was a globetrotting trip through West Africa and Europe during a creative down period that began to reveal the answer. 

“Part of my intent, making myself more comfortable with this release, is putting more Black stories into the genres of folk and blues,” Nichols explains. “Listening to this record, I want more Black people to hear themselves in this music that is truly theirs.” That desire is embodied in his self-titled debut album, composed largely of demos and studio sessions recorded between Wisconsin and Texas.
