On the Record Music: Poco’s Rusty Young talks about Daffodil Festival



MERIDEN — Pioneering country rock band Poco is headlining this year's Daffodil Festival, playing 4 p.m. April 27 in the Hubbard Park Bandshell.

For this episode of “On the Record: Music,” Jeniece Roman talks with Poco founding member Rusty Young, who’s still playing with the band 50 years later. 

Poco formed in Los Angeles after the breakup of Buffalo Springfield in the late 1960s around two former members of that legendary band, Richie Furay and Jim Messina.

Poco has had a number of members throughout the years and, according to the band’s website, has recorded more than 20 studio and live albums.
