Direct from their Flint Hills home, the Tallgrass Express String Band is coming to the library on Sunday to help us commemorate the Kansas Sesquicentennial.
Bluegrass music personifies the Kansas Prairie, and the most beautiful prairie in the world is in the Flint Hills.
The band will sing and play many original songs written in traditional style about Kansas and the land and life of the Flint Hills. Topics include cowboys and ranch life, wildlife, Native Americans, and the beauty of the landscape.
The Tallgrass Express String Band is a four-member string band located in the heart of the Kansas Flint Hills and dedicated to traditional style string band music.
The event is free and open to the public. Come to the show and then check out some music CDs from your library.
