Tallgrass Express String at the Topeka & Shawnee Co. Public Library


Sunday, February 1, 2015 - 15:00 to 16:00

Kick-Off our Big Read Celebration of True Grit with the Tallgrass Express String Band, pride of the Flint Hills.   Just like Mattie and her crew, Annie and her band will lead you on a wild musical chase through the Old West. Formed in 2004, Tallgrass Express is a truly regional band, staying close to their roots and performing mainly at community events in the Flint Hills region. Their mission is to provide local entertainment, and through their recordings, share with a broader audience their celebration of the beauty and wonder of the Kansas Flint Hills and its ranching culture. The band has recorded four CDs, including a unique album series of 46 all-original Songs from the Kansas Flint Hills.  The new 2014 double-CD album of 30 songs, entitled: "Sky & Water, Wind & Grass"follows the 2010 "Clean Curve of Hill Against Sky."
