The Scoop on Vandalia

The Chris Talley Trio played at the Courthouse Square on Saturday for the First Annual Bluegrass Festival in Vandalia, IL. It was a smaller affair, probably due to it being the first year, the EXCESSIVE heat, and powerful storms that swept through the area. Nevertheless, we had a great show and there were plenty of people in lawn chairs set up to listen to us!

Eleven-year old Nikki played banjo during the first set on a couple of tunes, and did such a great job that I had numerous requests for her to play again on the second set. She played Whoa Mule Whoa with Chris, then Foggy Mountain Breakdown and Jerusalem Ridge with the band. On the second set, she played Theme Time and Old Joe Clark with the band. Nikki will be playing with The Pickin' Chicks at Dubois, IL on October 3, 2009. You don't want to miss that performance!
