BASKERY

Stockholm comes to Buffalo! Baskery is composed of three sisters from Sweden, Greta, Stella & Sunniva Bondesson. Their music is not to be confused with country or bluegrass just from looking at the instruments. Baskery is not bound to any genre and they aim to keep it that way. They bring a refreshing twist to roots and Americana music blending their own originals with traditional classics. The band has toured extensively throughout Europe and North America and now have four albums to their credit:  Little Wild Life (2013/2014), New Friends (2011), Fall Among Thieves (2008), and One Horse Down (EP - 2007).
