Chris Vallillo Concert

Wednesday, February 13 › 7-8 p.m.

Columbia Public Library, Friends Room

Singer-songwriter Chris Vallillo makes rural America come to life in song. Performing on six-string and bottleneck slide guitars and harmonica, Vallillo weaves original, contemporary and traditional songs and narratives into a compelling portrait of the Midwest. Dirty Linen magazine described his music as “vivid, original story songs” delivered with an “eye for detail and a sense of history.” You can hear the strains of the Carter Family and Jimmy Rogers reflected in his writing. It’s roots based original and contemporary folk that echoes the influences of Mississippi John Hurt, Norman Blake, Doc Watson and John Fahey.

Adults and teens.

Registration: Not required.
