Americana group to perform at Leeds Center

Buffalo Wabs & the Price Hill Hustle will bring their lively and eclectic blend of American music to Winchester’s Leeds Center for the Arts on March 20.

The Cincinnati ensemble’s website, www.pricehillhustle.com, describes their style as being “from the mountains to Music Row, blues-gospel to traditional country,” “rowdy honkytonk” and “harmony-laden ballads.”

The band consists of Matt Wabnitz, aka, “Buffalo Wabs,” on lead guitar and lead vocals; Casey Campbell, aka, “The Deacon,” on drums, percussion and vocals; Scott Risner, aka “The Kentucky Waterfall,” on mandolin, resonator guitar and tenor banjo; and Bill Baldock, aka, “Bullseye Bill,” on upright bass and vocals.

The four-man band released their third album, “Stranger in the Alps,” last year and will perform their new material as well as older tunes from their repertoire. They have shared a stage with country star Tyler Childers, and in 2016, they won the Cincinnati Entertainment Award for Best Folk/American Band.

The show is the second installment of Leeds’ concert series that started this year, said Kaeton Crosby, assistant executive director for Leeds Center.

“We’ve had a great response” in ticket sales already,  Crosby said. “I think people are really excited about it.”

It will be something different and fun to do on a Friday night in downtown Winchester, she said.

The music series, she mentioned, was something that was “highly requested by the public.”

The first concert was by Joslyn and the Sweet Compression Jan. 24. The next one will be a Winchester (now Nashville) brother-and-sister duo, Theo & Brenna, on May 29.

The Price Hill Hustle concert is scheduled for 7:30 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students, and may be purchased online before the show at leedscenter.org or at the door.
