The Open Highway Festival opened at Off Broadway with a stellar showing from the Wild Rovers Tour, featuring Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons, The Candles, surprise guest Norah Jones and multiple mix-and-match combinations from the members. The banner of our buddies at Speakers in Code hung from the balcony over the sold-out crowd. While the (eventually confirmed) rumor of Norah Jones’ appearance drew some attendees out, it was clear that Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons has an ever-growing base in STL, with the crowd roaring with applause when the lanky songwriter took the stage. Photos were at a premium that evening, so enjoy the few below.
