Sunday Sounds: “Sycamore” and “The Buzz”

October 20 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm



Sycamore is a Northwest Arkansas folk/rock trio that focuses on original music and somewhat out of the ordinary cover tunes. The members of this experienced trio have a history of more than fifteen years in NWA rock, blues, country and folk/rock through their involvement in local bands.

Sycamore is:

  • Bruce Allen, guitar, mandola & vocals
  • Guy Ames, banjo, ukulele, bodrhan & vocals
  • Jim Nicholson, bass, guitar & vocals

Environmental themes run through this music, primarily due to the songwriting of Guy Ames. Guy has been referred to in a recent book published by the University of Arkansas Press as a “Hipbilly”. As one of the Ozark back-to-the-landers of the 1970’s, he followed the dream of a “peace of land” and became a farmer. Bruce’s songs tend more to self-reflection and Jim has a whole treasure-trove of original tunes.

The Buzz

The Buzz is a group of artistic Winslow friends who get together Sunday afternoons to play music for fun, camaraderie and to explore and extend their creativity. These Sunday sessions began more than a decade ago, and over time it’s become an informal tradition of a sort; an opportunity to learn how to play musical instruments, sing out unabashedly and receive some restoration of the soul.
