The Honey Bees and Eleanor Buckland (of Lula Wiles) at The Stone Church

The Stone Church
5 Granite St.
Newmarket, NH 03857
United States

The Honey Bees play the music of Mary Fagan and a wide variety of artists she covers in the genres of Western swing, 30’s jazz and all corners of Americana. Jock Irvine on upright bass and vocals and Chris O’Neill on electric guitars round out the Bees.

Since 2014, Eleanor Buckland has been one-third of Lula Wiles, the Boston-based folk-rock trio that has become an acoustic music scene favorite with their three critically hailed albums. For much of this time, however, Buckland was also working on another musical project – her own album. You Don’t Have To Know (released on October 29) spotlights a different side of Buckland’s musical interests as it sets her deeply personal songs against inventive indie rock arrangements.

Born and raised in Maine, Buckland comes from a family full of musicians. Her grandmother, Betty Buckland, was prominent in the New England bluegrass scene, while her father, Andy Buckland, played electric guitar in Boston area bands. It’s not surprising then that someone who grew up playing bluegrass fiddle music as well as a healthy dose of Michelle Branch and Sheryl Crow would wind up with varied musical tastes – something Buckland clearly demonstrates on her solo debut.


“Buckland’s folksy drawl plays perfectly with this fresh set of pop tunes that are seemingly built for fans of contemporary FM radio acts like Kacey Musgraves and Taylor Swift, both nostalgically rustic and immediately modern.” – WBUR

“Eleanor Buckland’s bracing blend of beautiful songs and perceptive honesty, seasoned with a dash of hope, is ultimately reassuring, and a little uplift is always welcome.” – No Depression

“infectious pop melody with a surging beat and chiming guitars…heavy-hearted stunners”  Folk Radio UK

“If there are new Joni Mitchells, Laura Nyros, and Patti Smiths fermenting in the musical scene – Ms. Buckland is one.” – Americana Highways
