Hickory Ridge Concert Series: Chril Vallillo CD Release Concert
ISM Dickson Mounds Museum Saturday, March 16, 2013, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Illinois singer-songwriter Chris Vallillo will celebrate the release of his 7th recording The Last Day of Winter with a special CD release concert Saturday March 16, 2013 at 7:30 pm at the Hickory Ridge Concert Series at the Dickson Mounds Museum in Lewistown, IL. Vallillo, who has long been known as a musician who makes the people and places of “unmetropolitan” America come to life in song, will be joined by Grammy nominated percussionist Rocky Maffit for the show which will be videotaped for later broadcast.
While some might disagree, Vallillo clearly believes “There is no such thing as too many guitars!” And with this new recording, he takes that claim seriously. For years he collected and restored old stringed instruments, some high quality, most quite inexpensive, but each with its own unique voice. With The Last Day of Winter, Vallillo uses this unique collection of voices to create a distinctive recording of original and American roots music heavily featuring his unique bottleneck slide playing.
