Upcoming Shows - Past Shows
Buddy Nutt is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and introverted show-off. Harkening back to simpler times with instruments like gut-bucket bass, singing saw and ukulele, while looking ahead to a time when instruments (like trumpets, tenor horns, and didgeridoo) will be recorded, and played back, all with the control of one’s foot. Buddy Nutt provides a most appropriate live performance for any contemporary recession.
