About The Local Girls:
The Athens, Ohio-based trio’s three-part harmony and engaging delivery has won them fans across the Midwest and even at the White House. The Local Girls have opened for Chubby Checker, accompanied David Bromberg, performed at the White House, and provided music for two award-winning series, one on women’s suffrage aired on NPR and a PBS-TV series on rural communities. In April, 2000 they appeared at Town Hall in New York City as guests of A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. In the summer of 2004, The Local Girls performed throughout Germany, Austria and France and busked on the streets of Vienna.

Although much of their material focuses on the hot and vampy swing tunes of the 30s and 40s, like those of The Boswell Sisters and the Jimmie Lunceford Trio, the Local Girls regularly perform their own arrangements of western, bebop, blues and standards. Covering a century of American songwriting, The Local Girls create a warm, rich and varied musical event, bringing good humored and haunting harmonies to songs from the silly to the heartbreaking.

The Local Girls’ swinging backup consists of guitar accompanist, Mike McGannon and upright bass player, Terry Douds, along with many other fine musicians.
