The Pressley Girls have a Variety Show!


The Pressley Girls Variety Show

A few months back The Pressley Girls started an online variety show. It’s something they’ve talked about doing for at least the last two years if not longer. Those of you who follow them on Facebook or Youtube probably already know about the show.

Over the last year the girls kept generating ideas for their show, but they never actually put them into action. From reading the blog you’ve probably gathered that the girls are real hams. They knew they wanted comedy to part of their show and that was one of the things that kept them from putting their ideas into action. They were coming up with all these elaborate skits but couldn’t figure out how to pull them off. I told them “If you don’t just jump in with both feet you’ll never accomplish the show. You can’t expect the first one to be exactly what you’ve envisioned so just start with something simple and go from there.”

They took my advice and decided they’d do something similar to what they do when they perform Morning Song at the John C. Campbell Folk School and they would aim for one show a month. The first show went over with a bang! Everyone seemed to love it. You can visit their Youtube Channel to watch it here.

One of the girls came up with the idea of asking fans to post questions for them to answer. Between answering the questions and doing a few Christmas songs that took care of the second edition of The Pressley Girls Variety Show. Oh-and remember the comedy part? Well they managed to bring that aspect of their personalities into the second show in a big way!

Watch the video below to see this month’s Pressley Girls Variety Show.

I hope you enjoyed watching the girls…and Little Joey. He’s become a regular member of our family in the last year. He’s got a mean streak but overall he’s very entertaining to have around.

    You and the Deer Hunter must be so proud. Merry Christmas to everyone! Beautiful Star of Bethlehem is my favorite Christmas song and Chitter and Chatter did it Lovely as I’ve ever heard. ( Mama’s brothers and their wives use to visit us, (when I was little and in the way) and it wouldn’t be long before they’d be singing “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem.”
    Chitter did great singing “Jingle Bells” as thru the voice of “Joey”. And I never heard Chatter talk so much, but I love them Girls, just like my own. …Ken

    Well of course I saw the first variety show and was anticipating the next one. I found it on their channel last night and watched it a few times. The first one was good, the second one is top notch. The Girls were especially beautiful and charming in their Christmas regalia. Little Joey was totally unexpected but I’m not surprised that they came up with him.
    I don’t have a long list of “friends” but I have been telling everyone I know about the Pressley Girls and StameyCreekCreations. Now I’ll get to introduce Little Joey too.
    Thanks Girls and Thank You Tipper!
    ***Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to all of you and all of the Wilson Clan.***

    I watched every minute of it! Little Joey was not who/what I expected. Don’t know why but I kept waiting for a dog to add to the comedy portion of the show. Katy was much better! Keep up the good work girls.

    My oh my, that was fun! And that Star of Bethlehem song was beautifully sung and played – glad you aren’t afraid to tackle the “tough” ones!
    Now I’m off to the feed store before they close up early, to see if I might get a wreath to put some lights on and hang on my workshop so I can see it from the house and folks driving by can catch a glimpse too. Probably won’t risk a tree again this year, as the kittens are a year older but no less rambunctious than last year! Happy Christmas Eve to the Blind Pig family and the whole Gang of readers and followers and commenters 🙂

    I love it! What a great job girls, and Joey! I’ve known Joey for a while but never realized he had such singing talent. I’d love to hear a song where the three of you sing together.
