Wednesday: Greg Klyma @ Allen Hall

Filed under: Good Ideas, Music

home_pic_oct09WBFO’s Wednesday night concert series continues at Allen Hall on UB’s South Campus with Buffalo-born folk troubadour Greg Klyma. Although Klyma now spends most of his time on the road touring, and he did relocate to Austin, Texas in 2004, Klyma is still considered a hometowner by his fans and the local media (he continues to get votes in Artvoice’s annual Best of Buffalo polls, having already won the honor of best folk/acoustic performer in the past), and he considers himself the same. This is where he comes “home,” to visit his family and to record his albums. Although a description of this singer/songwriter/storyteller almost invariably includes the word “troubadour” (that adjective appears everywhere—except Klyma’s own website), he prefers to describe himself by the title of his fifth album: as a “Rust Belt Vagabond.” He’ll make his way to Vermont right after Wednesday’s (Oct. 4) gig, then tour around the northeast until he returns for a show at the Sportsmen’s on Dec. 2. We’re always glad when he wanders back through our neck of the woods.
