Rachael Davis grew up in a musical family and the over 100 who attended her free concert at KPL on Tuesday night got to experience what it may have been like growing up in the Davis home. In classic "storyteller" fashion she told the tales behind each of her songs with the amazing guitarist Jesse Lee Mason from the band Millish. Rachael's dislike of Atlanta was definitely apparent in the song "Atlanta's Burning" and her love for her grandmother was obvious in "Lela May," the song which won her the 2003 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour contest. Many in the audience could hardly contain their emotions when she sang the lullaby written for her 11 month old son Virgil. It was another exceptional show at KPL!
Don't miss Michael Beauchamp on September 17th.
