Music for the Wild: Magnolia Buckskin with guests Horizon Ridge

Oct 28 2012 - 1:00am

Hailed as one of the city’s “leading roots country acts”, Magnolia Buckskin brings you bohemian cowgirl, gospel touched folk roots music with sweet harmonies. Kathy Cook, Natasha Platt, Emily Triggs and Corry Ulan take turns singing the lead on their original tunes. They juggle between instruments: mandolin, banjo, guitar, accordion, bass and percussion. The sound is a collection of their influences: a little bit of country and a hint of West Virginia drawl, the bluegrass sweet spot, the folk connection, and a heart for gospel.
