Born in the rustbelt Irish American neighborhood of South Buffalo, NY in 2010, Crikwater have become the premier Irish American Traditional Folk Band in Western New York. The pub-scene veterans offer up a mix of fiery fiddle tunes, rowdy pub sing-a-longs, elegant ballads & original songs, and have appeared numerous times at both the Buffalo Irish Festival & South Buffalo Irish Feis & Expo.
The Observers take you on a journey of human experience. Their shows allow you to travel through a myriad of emotions from tear in your beer ballads, to remain in your brain melodies, and even down home, foot stompin’ hootenannies.
The band got its start in 2013 when Tom Maynor and Dan Nolan, two middle school teachers who had performed with students and colleagues over the years, decided to perform on a regular basis throughout Buffalo and other parts of Western New York. While the band started off covering songs by The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Wilco, the Band, Tom Petty and others, their current set list features mostly original material. The songs are best described as folk-rock with strong harmonies.More Information Facebook Event Find Prepaid Parking
