Buffalo Nichols Announces December Headline Tour

Buffalo Nichols today announced a run of December headline shows around his tour supporting St. Paul and the Broken Bones, as well as additional in-store performances amidst his current run with Drive-By Truckers. He is also set to headline the State Theatre in Austin, TX, on January 22nd. Nichols performs next tomorrow at the first of a three-show run at Brooklyn Bowl in support of the latter. A current itinerary is below.

The Austin, TX-based and Milwaukee, WI-raised Nichols, Fat Possum’s first solo blues signing in nearly 20 years, released his self-titled debut album on October 15th to wide acclaim.

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.
