This truly regional band specializes in original “Songs of the Kansas Flint Hills” celebrating the scenic beauty, rich heritage, and unique ranching culture of the Flint Hills tallgrass prairie. The group can also perform a variety of western swing, folk, celtic, bluegrass and blues. Rancher-songwriter Annie Wilson – named the “Flint Hills Balladeer” in 2013 - writes many of their songs, available on CDs in local stores and on-line at http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/TallgrassExpressStringBand. (Annie also appears frequently at the Emma Chase Friday Night Music in Cottonwood Falls - see Travel.ks listing.) Tallgrass Express's historic western dress, blended harmonies, and instrumental skills appeal to all ages. To see their performance schedule, lyrics, photos, videos, contact and booking info, check out their website www.tallgrassexpress.com. The Emporia Gazette says: "This group is the real deal; their music rises from the land they love."
