Longtime rural Midwestern singer/songwriter Chris Vallillo headlines the Prairie Grapevine Folklore Society Concert on Tuesday evening, April 22. Known for his skillful guitar playing and singing, Vallillo’s 2008 Abraham Lincoln in Song, released by Gin Ridge Records, reached No. 10 on Billboard’s bluegrass album chart. Dirty Linen magazine described his music as “vivid, original story songs” delivered with an “eye for detail and a sense of history” while Folk Wax magazine said “Vallillo’s guitar playing flows like warm honey and is a true aural delight.” Grammy-nominee Rocky Maffit joins Vallillo.
