Nietzsche’s FolkFest 2017 presents Tough Old Bird (Fillmore, NY)
“A musician’s work can sometimes sound like an extension of his surroundings. As for Tough Old Bird’s Matthew and Nathan Corrigan… every acoustic guitar chord or Corrigan vocal evokes a mood, one you could feel floating over the expanses and history of their host Allegany County.” -Michael Farrell, The Buffalo News
Formed in the small community of Fillmore, New York by songwriting brothers Matthew and Nathan Corrigan, Tough Old Bird plays modern folk music that reflects the landscape it comes from, a place where the last train just pulled out and the carnival is always on its way to the next town.
“Full and rich…the homespun folk of Tough Old Bird has a dark quality to it, while ultimately serving as a testament to the Corrigan brothers’ synthesis of their surroundings. With these songs, they’ve captured the essence of familiar backroads meandering.” – buffaBLOG
