Caught Sally Walker as the singer of "Little Diva and the G Strings," a jazz and blues group, at Oak Grove Pavillion at Zion Lutheran Church Saturday night.
Lord, that woman can sing the blues…and jazz…and I imagine anything else she sets her mind too. Her rendition of Peggy Lee’s classic "Fever" sends chills down your spine.
A lot of mournful blues comes out of that little package.
My first visit to Oak Grove. It won’t be my last. A pleasant place to catch good music on a balmy Saturday evening. Kudos to Zion for offering this venue for music in the county.
Also the first time I’ve heard Sally Walker sing. Won’t be the last time for that either.
Floyd has always been known for its musical talent and Sally is an outstanding addition to the local music scene. It’s good to see the growth of good blues in the area, from Scott Perry at The Pickin’ Porch to Sally Walker and other groups that appear at local venues like Oak Grove and Oddfellas Cantina.
Proves there more to the Floyd music scene than just good Bluegrass (and the Bluegrass is pretty damn good too. And FloydFest is coming up in a couple of weeks, offering even more musical variety for the area.
