The Spring Creek Bluegrass Band

Spring Creek Bluegrass Band- for the Grateful Web

The Spring Creek Bluegrass Band from Lyons, Colorado is quickly gaining a reputation as the hottest young band in the Rocky Mountains! The quartet play a mix of bluegrass standards and compelling originals, and all four musicians are also accomplished vocalists.

The young band, whose members met in music school in Texas, have studied and performed together for several years, creating a tight, polished sound. Counting such bands as Country Gazette and Hot Rize among their influences, Spring Creek's members have a deep respect for tradition, as well as an innate sense of musical innovation.

Judges at two recent band competitions agree that Spring Creek have what it takes to deliver the high, lonesome sounds in the Appalachian tradition. The band won the Telluride Bluegrass Festival band contest back in June 2007, and won their second Planet Bluegrass title at the 35th annual Rocky Mountain Bluegrass Festival held in Lyons.

Though they clearly appeal to traditional bluegrass fans, the Spring Creek musicians mix in a little something for everyone at their live shows. Expect to hear an Elton John or Gillian Welch cover squeezed in between a blazing fast Carter Stanley instrumental and a rip roarin' Bill Monroe tune.

Finders and Youngberg is a newly formed folk/bluegrass/country music partnership between two talented couples whose paths have finally converged and begun to carve a distinct mark. Though this alliance is newly solidified, the experience of the individuals is boldly evident in the award-winning songwriting and the spaces between the seasoned vocal and instrumental performances.

You can see the Spring Creek Bluegrass band in Boulder on Friday, August 22nd at the Boulder Theater.
