Local and National Musical Talent to Headline Lubbock’s First Buffalo Grass Fest | KLBK | KAMC

The Lubbock Music Friendly Community announces the first Buffalo Grass Fest to be held Monday, May 2, 2022 at the Cactus Theater. The Buffalo Grass Fest offers great music and professional development for independent musicians and artists. This year’s inaugural event will feature LA recording artist, educator and YouTube sensation Aimee Nolte with collaborator and Jacksonville, Florida guitarist Taylor Roberts. An overture will be performed by Lubbock’s own Marco’s Crew featuring the incomparable Joy Harris.

“This event is unlike any other in Lubbock,” said Scott Faris, committee member and owner of Amusement Park Recording Studio. “It promises to be an educational and entertaining event by artists who have come a long way to developing their own successful careers and who are ready to share that knowledge with the public.”

The Buffalo Grass Fest complements the mission of the Lubbock Music Friendly Community certification that Lubbock received in fall 2020 by offering programs that develop Lubbock’s unique and magical music industry. “We want to help our artists and musicians become not only great on stage, but also great in the industry,” Faris said.

Tickets are on sale at the Cactus Theater for $10 and students can attend for free with a valid student ID. The committee is still welcoming sponsorships for this non-profit event, and interested parties can contact [email protected] for more information.

“The committee really wants it to be accessible to everyone and we keep the cost extremely low for the quality of the evening. We rely on sponsors to make this happen,” Faris said.

Event sponsored in part by: John and Katie Salter, United Supermarkets, Lubbock Symphony Orchestra and Lubbock Cultural Arts Foundation.
