The Pressley Girls in The Old Courthouse.    
Friday, May 29 at 7:00 p.m.

    The Pressley Girls are Katie and Corie, also known in their mother’s blog, “The Blind Pig and the Acorn,” as Chitter and Chatter.  They come from an award-winning musical family and have been involved in music all of their lives. 
    Their grandfather, Jerry Wilson, was one of the famous Wilson Brothers from western North Carolina.  Jerry usually plays guitar with the girls, but has recently been sidelined for a while because of a fall and heart attack.  They will be accompanied by their Uncle Paul Wilson who is also an excellent singer and guitarist.  Their mother, Tipper Pressley will be playing bass.
    The girls perform a wide variety of material from old traditional mountain songs to some of the latest.  They also write much of their own material.

    There is never an admission charge to concerts presented by the Union County Historical Society.  The musicians donate their time and talents.  Voluntary donations to the maintenance fund are always welcomed and appreciated.
