Tim and The Glory Boys Bringing Christian Bluegrass to Cambridge, London and Windsor

Tim-and-the-Glory-BoysBC Christian bluegrass band Tim and The Glory Boys are currently on a tour across Ontario performing at churches on their Buffalo Roadshow Tour. The band will appear in the 519 at Forward Church in Cambridge on Dec. 8, New Hope Community Church in London on Dec. 9 and Lakeshore St. Andrews Church in Windsor on Dec. 12.

The band has a bit of a hillbilly vibe, much like Washboard Union, but the message is very clearly Christian. We like to call them the first Hillbilly Christian band. We recently spoke with leader Tim Neufeld about the hillbilly image and their messages in Christ.

The boys are currently in Ontario to support their latest album, The Buffalo Roadshow as well as their upcoming country singles and EP. The tour will continue all through 2019 and include over 120 concerts in Canada, 60 across the US and 20 in the UK.
