It’s the second Friday of the month, and Buffalo folkies Crows & Jays will be performing with FolkFaces in The Front Yard of the Burchfield Penny Art Museum. Using clever harmonization to emphasize a lyrically driven approach to their take on indie-folk, Crows and Jays have made quite the sonic splash since their 2012 formation. Touring as the opening act for The Whigs only three months into the band’s conception, and with one EP and one LP already floating in their wake, this quartet is sure to bring some live and folked-out energy to the Elmwood Village tonight.

Walking a more roots-driven line down the broad paths of bluegrass, jazz, ragtime, and more, the folks of FolkFaces tout an array of instrumental talent. Dobro, banjo, upright bass, washboard and harmonica, just to name a few. Together, these two bands should prove perfect compliments under the warm-setting sun of a Buffalo summer night.

Show starts at 5:30. Tunes for free.
