Tallgrass Express String Band

338 Middle Creek Rd. Elmdale, Ks 66850 620-273-8301 Show Map | Return to top.
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 2014 double-CD album of 30 songs, entitled: “Sky & Water,
Wind & Grass” follows the 2010 “Clean Curve of Hill Against Sky.”

In addition to their original songs about the land and life of the Flint Hills, they perform fast-
driving old timey and bluegrass favorites, folk ballads, Western swing tunes, beautiful Celtic
melodies, early American gospel hymns, and beloved Cowboy and Western standards.
Tallgrass Express tailors programs to fit each audience.

In historic western dress, they share their musical skills on fiddle, mandolin, harmonica, guitar
and bass and specialize in lyrical vocals and harmonies.  Concerts include brief stories on the
background of songs, humorous observations on rural life today, and frequent references to
the heritage, land and culture of their home, the tallgrass prairie of the Kansas Flint Hills.

It’s all delivered with a sparkle they hope shows how much they enjoy making and sharing their
music with others.

With over 300 performances, their experience includes community festivals and concerts,
gallery openings, historical events, organization dinners, parties, weddings and receptions,
church programs, and dances.  Their Roving Music is a regular feature at the Symphony in the
Flint Hills.

Founding member Annie Wilson says, “We feel incredibly lucky to live amidst the splendor and
wide open spaces of the Flint Hills tallgrass prairie.  Through our music, we celebrate this land
and its people.”

The Tallgrass Prairie Preserve is one of the nation’s newest national preserves. It protects one of the last remaining tallgrass ecosystems in the world. Tallgrass prairie once covered 400,000 square miles of North America, but less than 4% remains, primarily here in Chase County.

Explore over 10,000 acres including five hiking trails, a bison herd, abundant wildlife, catch and release fishing areas, as well as an 1881 historic ranch house, limestone barn and outbuildings, and nearby one room schoolhouse. The Preserve was named one of the Eight Wonders of Kansas in 2008.
