Show Info

The Blind Owl Band was formed in 2011 by Eric Munley (Mandolin, Vocals), Christian Cardiello (Bass), Arthur Buezo (Guitar, Vocals) and James Ford (Banjo, Vocals) when they were all students at Paul Smiths College in the Adirondacks. At first glance, this Saranac Lake quartet looks like a bluegrass band and draws some influence from both traditional and modern bluegrass musicians such as Earl Scruggs and John Hartford. But those influences are blended with the musicians' strong punk, indie and classic rock background. The resulting music has echoes of all these things, from punk rock gang vocals to driving rock rhythms (minus the drum kit, of course). In just under two years the band has released their debut album “Rabble Rousing” -- a 15 track album featuring all original music. This past July they released the follow up -- “This Train We Ride is Made of Wood and Steel” -- a 12 track album that demonstrates their continuing development. Heavy regional touring has also ensued all over the Northeast -- playing over 250 shows in 9 states since they started touring in January 2012. The Blind Owl Band has also appeared at over 25 festivals during this time. The Blind Owl Band has shared the stage with Railroad Earth, Larry and His Flask, The Rumpke Mtn. Boys, Hot Day at the Zoo, Floodwood, Jatoba, Driftwood, Cabinet, The Bloodroots Barter, The Mallett Brothers and many more! It has been a positive start for the Blind Owl Band. They look forward to expanding new grounds in 2014 both on the surface of the earth and in the noise in the air! Get ready for Adirondack Freight Train String Music!
