Buffalo Gals are an Old Time Country String Band, perhaps the UK’s favourite. They are at the forefront of the current wave of American roots-inspired music, representing a revival of the old string band tradition in its most vibrant form. Their live shows are uniquely punctuated by a stunning and thrillingly syncopated traditional Appalachian step-dance that has become one of their trademarks.
The Buffalo Gals revel in the traditional old songs and tunes of Appalachia, early Bluegrass, early Country music, blues and rags, ballads, spirituals, Cajun and gospel, all brought to life with a talent for fresh arrangement. You can look forward to a exciting concert that brings praise and applause from aficionados and new-comers alike.
Through the driving energy of banjo and fiddle, soaring harmonies, and syncopated, percussive step-dance, the visual and musical delights of this band, as well as their humour, repartee and rapport with audiences, produce irresistible shows perfect for most music venues and festivals as well as arts centres or more intimate village halls.
Buffalo Gals got together in 2001, headed by champion Maryland fiddler Kate Lissauer, to share their love of old-time country music. They’ve been going strong ever since.
