Back to Where it All Started: The Last Bison Come Home

by Jonah Grinkewitz

Virginia natives, The Last Bison, are playing at the Sandler Center for the “Out of the Box” Emerging Concert Series on March 10th, hosted by Paul Shugrue to spotlight local artists in Hampton Roads.

The Last Bison’s latest album, entitled VA and pronounced “Virginia”, sees the band returning to its independent roots after their last album was produced by Universal Republic and offers up a fuller and more layered sound while staying true to their characteristic acoustic folk style.

Ben Hardesty, lead for the band, joined me at Borjo Coffee House in Norfolk to chat about their concert, their new album, and the music scene in the Hampton Roads area.
