If you have yet to experience Buffalo Gals Stampede - the hottest dance and music show on the scence - then book 7th March at the David Hall, South Petherton in your diary now.
Comprising 10 of us - yes, really! This is a wonderful night of high energy, vibrant percussive step-dance from five of the country's finest Appalachian flat-foot dancers, plus, of course, the driving rhythms and beautiful traditional high lonesome sounds you already know from the Buffalo Gals band.
You would normally have to wait for the festival season in order to catch the Stampede in action in the South West. We're delighted not only to be performing at this amazing venue but we're also running a dance workshop from 5.30-6.30 All abilities welcome - just book yourself a place and turn up with a willingless to learn, a bottle of water and a sense of humour.

Not sure what to expect? Just have a look at our Buffalo Gals Stampede brand spanking new mini documentary - to get a feeling for who we all are. We haven't branched into opening a TV channel or anything but we get asked a lot about the dance style, the history of the music, how life is on the road so do click on the documentary link and let us share with you some of the fun we have along they way.

The last thing to tell you about today is the announcement of the dates for the wonderful specialist Music Weeks and Dance Weeks - amazing learning holidays in Spain.
23-30th May is La Fuente Old Time Music Workshop Week: we've scheduled it during the half-term (for many UK schools) so do feel free to make it a family affair - the weather should be beautiful in Spain at that time of year and anyone not wanting to join in classes in fiddle, banjo, guitar, ukele, singing or step-dance can take a dip in the private solar-heated pool or go walking and climbing in the beautiful mountains. Take a look at the website for more detail or just get in touch with email@example.com
As always, we are touched and grateful for your support, for you presence at our gigs, for your kind words about our CDs - none of it is taken for granted and we hope you will always come up and say howdy at the shows and continue to tell us what you like and don't like about them. Thanks for listening - and in some cases joining in - we raise a glass to you all!
