Playing Again at the Historic Union County Courthouse

Union County Courthouse Georgia

The Pressley Girls, Paul, and I recently returned to the Historic Union County Georgia Courthouse to perform. We’ve been playing there for years.

The Historic Society closed during the pandemic and we were honored to play their very first show after reopening.

It’s one of our favorite places to play.

Here’s a peek at the concert.

I hope you enjoyed the songs and the silliness. The gentleman from Ridge Line TV was there filming, so hopefully we can share the entire concert with you later.

    Enjoyed this so much. Made me so happy. Family harmony is the best! My mother and her 3 sisters sang together and I can remember as a child thinking how beautiful & how beautiful they were. They are now singing in that Heavenly choir! Take care and God bless!

    What fun! But you need a banjer! Maybe some day when I get back your way I could jam with you. I’d like to check out the school too.

    Happy pickin’! Hank Skewis

    Just the Mountain Music Medicine that Mary and I needed after she lost a much loved family member tragically unexpected yesterday…..Thank You Wilson Family!…..I have got to pay closer attention to your Blairsville Play Dates….I have only seen Chitter, Chatter and Momma Tipper play once about two years ago…..I think it was in 2019 after we moved to the mountains in November of 2018…..It was an outdoor venue, an art festival about a block south of the old Blairsville courthouse…..Of course, we would be happy to join you in the Murphy, NC area as we live about three miles west of Nottely Dam and a mile east of the Woodruff Scout Camp…..Love your singing and your shared joy of life!

    Does Corie’s fiancé sing? Is he a bass? You know, a bass voice would add a lot to *The Pressley Girls* just like the bass guitar does to the instrumentation? If he doesn’t sing maybe she ought to throw him back and go catch a bass.

    John Prine’s “Paradise” is, in my view, an absolute masterpiece of song writing, and I was delighted to hear you folks lead off with this timeless lament (for that is, in a quite real sense, what this song is). All of of us have fond, perhaps fleeting, memories of something that has “done been hauled away.”

    I’m sure you folks are, so to speak, delighted to be “on the road again.”

    I hope to see the whole concert when you post it. I always seem to miss when you are here in town. Thanks for sharing this video.

    Seems something has hauled a lot of things away that we remember. The times they have been changing and are changing still, leaving me behind. And I don’t care to chase’em.

    So glad you all got to return to one of your favorite places. I am dumb as a bucket about music but it seems the acoustics in that room are really good. I think you all could have taped “Careless Soul” straight without any post-processing. Glad you all sung that one to. Folks are getting shy nowadays about singing the old altar call songs, such as “Softly and Tenderly”. Another thing getting hauled away?

    Wow!!! I thought you all sounded clear and harmonious and looked spiffy too!!! The acoustics in that courthouse were fantastic. I especially liked Chatter’s start (that brought down the house) to Working on a Building. Her smile was from the heart. You all sound so excellent TOGETHER! And I see you have a good time and lots of fun entertaining which is what it’s all about!!! Have a blessed Sabbath, y’all!!! Thanks for sharing the show with us.

    Wow, that was a great concert!!! The Pressley girls just get better and better. I loved the harmony and it was wonderful to see you being able to get back on the stage. Last Sunday was the first time I was able to get back to church. Thankful for streaming but nothing actually beats being there in person for Worship Service and Sunday School. I was giddy about getting back as I am sure you all felt with getting back to the Historic Union County Courthouse. I was actually clapping my hands along with the audience. God Bless.
