Nikki Talley

Nikki Talley’s music delivers the sound and feel of her North Carolina heritage in every song at every show.  Always genuine and always down to earth, Nikki delivers a memorable performance every time.

Hailing from the mountains of western North Carolina, it’s only fitting that her show is as eclectic as a state that boasts both the mountains and the sea. With a voice that goes from “whisper sweet” to a passionate belt, and then to a heartfelt honky tonk croon, she performs original songs that resonate with soulful melodies and lyrics that tell the kind of stories everyone loves to hear. Her guitar work and claw hammer style banjo perfectly frame  those thoughtful songs and that gorgeous voice.

Nikki isolating with her accompanist, husband, and parental partner for life, Jason Sharp, and with their daughter Eva. Jason’s guitar work soars and his mountain harmonies perfectly compliment Nikki’s voice. But only if Eva is napping from 7:00 to 8:00 this coming Tuesday.  We’ll see.

Folk Project Acoustic Stayaway concerts are FREE. In the fine forty-year tradition of our Troubadour, all donations made during the show will go directly to the performer.
Join us Tuesday, April 3rd. Think of this as your e-Troubadour. It takes a few minutes on your end, so join at 6:50 for a 7:00 launch.
