A British band at the forefront of the current wave of American roots-inspired music, the six musicians of The Buffalo Gals revive the old string band tradition in its most vibrant form, punctuated with a thrilling and syncopated traditional step-dance that has become one of their trademarks.

The band will perform at Chinley Women’s Institute on Friday November 29, at 7.30pm, in conjunction with Blackbrook Valley Arts and Live & Local.

Terry Jackson, of Blackbrook Valley Arts, said: “It’s fantastic to welcome the Buffalo Gals here to Chinley.
