“A feast of fiddle and banjo-led tunes and song in the high lonesome sound of the South Appalachian Mountains. Led by kate Lissauer, a champion American fiddler and dynamic singer, they mix ballads, blues and spirituals with soaring harmonies and dazzling displays of percussive step-dancing” The Word
Buffalo Gals is at the forefront of the American roots music scene in the UK and Europe, and represent a revival of the string band tradition in its most vibrant form. Their intoxicating style, incorporating Appalachian, Blues, Gospel, early Bluegrass, and novelties from the heyday of early country music, is punctuated with the stunning and thrillingly syncopated step-dance that has become one of their trademarks. Combining a love of traditional sounds with an enthusiasm for fresh arrangement and a talent for lively entertainment, they appeal to audiences of all ages and types, whether they be aficionados of old-time country music or completely new to its charms.
The visual and musical appeal of their performances, as well as their humour and rapport with their audiences, have made Buffalo Gals one of the most highly regarded acts on the roots music circuit
“…so vibrant, exciting and energetic…” Maverick Magazine
