January 24. “Bands like Old Crow Medicine Show, the Horseflies, and the Highwoods String Band came out of this same area and had a huge influence on us,” says Driftwood’s Dan Forsyth about his group’s home base of Binghamton. “We played a lot of old-time music in the beginning and it was a huge part of our band learning to play music together.” The insurgent Americana string band, which drifts into Snug Harbor (aka Snug’s) in late January, just released its self-titled third album, a disc produced, quite appropriately, by Donna the Buffalo’s guitarist, Jeb Puryear, and engineer, Robby Hunter. Call for set time and ticket price. New Paltz. (845) 255-9800.
