The Buffalo Gals
At the forefront of the current wave of American roots-inspired and Bluegrass music, Buffalo Gals return to UK touring with their ‘Miraculous Medicine Show’, a guaranteed cure for the 21 Century!
Featuring the music of The Carter Family, Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, Pete Seeger and other greats of U.S. old-time, as well as their own original compositions, this band of wild rovers will wipe your modern-day cares away.
Relying faithfully on the magic of fiddle & banjo, the Gals trust in the restorative, positively miraculous powers of the music of bygone days, the uplifting joy of percussive dance & the edifying effects of a good story well told.
Buffalo Gals’ intoxicating style and dry-humoured delivery is punctuated with the stunning and thrillingly syncopated traditional Appalachian step-dance that has become one of their trademarks. Led by champion USA fiddler Kate Lissauer and featuring a solo dancer, Buffalo Gals specialise in the old songs and tunes of Appalachia, early Bluegrass, early Country music, blues and rags, ballads, work songs, dance numbers, spirituals and gospel – all delivered with passion, flair and humour.
Let the disheartened be uplifted, let the non-believers find meaning, the frail find strength and the dead be raised to their feet to dance!
“The Buffalo Gals might just be one of the finest old-time country string bands to date, and by far one of the most talented and inventive groups I’ve so far come across.” Maverick Magazine
