Shovels and Rope Get Intimate at Asbury Hall

Tuesday, March 20, Shovels and Rope tour found them in Asbury Hall, the former church turned concert hall in Buffalo, NY. It was an intimate ‘evening with’ format so no opener needed as the duo took to the stage with just a single lamp as the only source of light as they played a tender ballad. As the evening wore on so did the intensity of the music and the lights. It remained a relaxed affair and plenty of tales from the road were shared with the audience in between songs that spanned the duo’s career.
