Nationally-known singer, songwriter Michael Martin Murphey has added the historic town of Buffalo, Wyoming, to his touring schedule this month.
He'll be performing on Sunday, the 29th, in the saloon of the historic Occidental Hotel on Main Street. David Stewart is the co-owner of the hotel, who runs the saloon. He said Murphey picked the local hotel, personally, because it struck a chord with him and the venue is a perfect fit for his current musical project.
Murphey's probably best known for his iconic hits “Wildfire” and “Carolina in the Pines.” But fans will also be hoping he'll play songs from his latest release, “Red River Drifter.” If he stays true to form, his concert will be an eclectic mix of musical styles that includes country, blues, pop, western, bluegrass, and even, classical.
It's that musical style mix that's earned Murphey the moniker of “True American Songwriter.” In fact, back in the early 1970s, “Rolling Stone Magazine” called Murphey, “one of the best songwriters in America.” Since then, he's topped the pop, country, bluegrass and Western music charts and has earned six gold albums and multiple Grammy nominations. Stewart simply says his music is authentic.
The Buffalo concert starts at 7. Tickets are $20, available by calling The Occidental.
