The King’s Busketeers is a folk band from Massachusetts that began when three friends from King Richard’s Faire decided to play a gig together, adding American folk songs and spirited originals to the traditional English, Scottish, and Irish songs they sang at the Faire. The trio gradually blossomed into a full-fledged band, taking on new talent and new adventures across New England, wowing old friends, and drawing new fans into an ever-growing, enthusiastic audience. The band is composed of Sam Atwood, Josh Gannon-Salomon, and Andrew Prete. The Busketeers cultivate a high-energy, soulful folk sound with rich vocal and instrumental harmonies, a refreshing blend of tenderness and humor, and enough foot-stomping, bone-shaking power to lift the lid of a venue clean off!
“We are The King’s Busketeers, a high-octane folk group from Massachusetts (and a little bit Rhode Island)! We make traditional songs from the British Isles and North America shake the rafters, with some bardic acapella hollering and floor-stomping originals added in for flavor. Come, friend, and have a listen!”
