This "Songs of the Flint Hills" Vol. 4 (2020) takes listeners to the peaceful prairie landscape at sunset, and shares stories celebrating the native Osage Nation, rodeo trick rider Margie Roberts, a heroic steer of the Chisolm Trail, the prairie music of coyotes, early day romance and old-time dances, a cowgirl’s regret, and modern ranchers’ struggles against invasive species. All are original songs by singer-songwriter-rancher Annie Wilson, Kansas’s official “Flint Hills Balladeer,” enhanced by the rich vocal harmonies and skilled instrumentation of Carl Reed, Derrick Doty and Brent Entz on fiddle, banjo, guitar, bass and harmonica.

The band’s second album presents 18 songs from the trio of Annie Wilson on guitar, Loren Ratzloff on banjo and dobro, and Charlie Laughridge on fiddle. It emphasizes their superior instrumentation in the hauntingly beautiful Neil Gow’s Lament and rollicking old timey standards.

The album also features seven original songs: an instrumental by Charlie Laughridge, and new songs by Annie - beginning to find her voice as a songwriter with Gathering the Wild Horses, Corner Post, Sweet Years, and Ballad of Stiller Ben - her family’s early true story of a father of eleven murdered by river pirates. The group was joined in this recording by the talented Carole Brown, then of Matfield Green, on bass. (2007)

This first Tallgrass Express album contains some real gems. Among the 18 songs, Charlie Laughridge will really get you moving with his classic old-time fiddle tunes and cowboy vocals. Derrick Doty demonstrates remarkable instrumentation and shares his moving love song Ancient Sound. Loren’s banjo work gives this album a real kick; then he slows it down beautifully for Shenandoah and In the Pines. Finally, this CD contains Annie Wilson’s first two original songs about life in the Flint Hills: Reasons for Home, and This Was a Very Good Year. (2005)
