"They just got the crowd going and had a roaring reception. Astonishing."
- Janice Long,
BBC Radio 2

Performance at 7.45pm. Bar from 7.15pm.

The Buffalo Skinners are a songwriting collective based in Sheffield.

Their music stems from a shared passion for songwriting and singing in harmony. Kieran Thorpe plays Fender Rhodes Keyboard, James Nicholls the Violin, Peter Seccombe the Guitar, Miles Stapleton the Drums and Robbie Thompson, Bass. The band draw influence from 60's Rock n Roll, Folk, Blues and whatever else they've been listening to recently.

Over the past six years the boys have shared highs and lows, personal space, and an ex-postal van across England, America and France. Most importantly they have shared their songs, with anyone willing to listen. Bob Harris, Steve Lamacq, Cerys Matthews, Janice Long and Dermot O'Leary have all been among them, and have in turn all played tracks from the first two albums on BBC Radio. This has led to endless festival appearances across the UK including Glastonbury, BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park, Boomtown Fair, Wilderness, Tramlines, Camp Bestival, the Cambridge Folk Festival
