Nikki Talley at Grounds and Sounds - Friday, June 14 - 8:00 p.m.
Nikki Talley has been described as a “hardworking, energetic, mountain girl with a big voice.” On June 14 at 8 p.m. she’ll bring her mountain influenced music to Grounds and Sounds Café, the monthly live music coffee house in East Setauket, NY. In addition to her trademark stunning vocals, Talley plays the guitar and claw hammer banjo. Accompanied by her husband Jason Sharp, who adds guitar, banjo and bass on stage, Talley has ventured from her Asheville, NC base to play over 150 shows all across the eastern U.S. in the last year.
Talley’s beloved home state of North Carolina boasts both mountains and seashores, and her music is just as wide-ranging, covering country, folk, rock and old time with a vitality that has audiences stomping and clapping for more. Critics have acclaimed her fiery stage performance, hauntingly seductive and gritty lyrics, all lifted by a voice that harkens back to her Appalachian roots. With a recently recorded concert album, Talley brings the mountains in her heart to Long Island.
“One thing she isn’t: afraid of the microphone. Talley has undeniable stage presence…”Mountain Express
“Talley’s always silken, yet adaptable voice is on full display on this album, whispering sweet nothings to the listener on some songs (as on the title track), belting out her passion with full desperate power on others (as on “Fugitives”) and crooning out her heartache honky-tonk style as on ‘Don’t Stand’ or ‘Sing Him Away.’"Bold Life Magazine

Over 40 UUFSB members and families attended, enjoying the performance and staying to watch the Stony Brook team crush the opposition. Thanks to all who participated, with special thanks to Chris D'Orso for his help in putting this together! Watch the video:
