The Creek Rocks
May 31st, Every Thursday evening in June.
The Creek Rocks are a folk group from the Ozarks led by banjoist Cindy Woolf and guitarist Mark Bilyeu. These longtime musical collaborators worked together on Cindy's three CDs of original songs starting in 2005, they married in 2013, then established The Creek Rocks in 2015. Mark is a founding member of Ozarks family band Big Smith, with whom he toured and recorded for sixteen years. Their debut release, “Wolf Hunter,” is a collection of sixteen folk songs from the Ozarks, drawn from the collections of folklorists Max Hunter of Springfield, Missouri, Mark’s hometown; and John Quincy Wolf of Batesville, Arkansas, where Cindy grew up. Joining them on the album are bassist Jason Chapman of the Chapmans bluegrass band and percussionist Jay Williamson, also of Big Smith, who currently serves as the band's go-to live percussionist. Cindy and Mark often perform as a duo, but are also buttressed by a host of musician friends when a full band seems decorous for the situation. "Wolf Hunter" has gathered critical accolades for The Creek Rocks, including the prestige of their photo gracing the cover of the September 2017 issue of Acoustic Guitar Magazine, along with a feature article. Prior to that, a profile of Bilyeu appeared in the March 2014 issue of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine.
Lavender Falls Farm welcomes back one of our favorites every Saturday this June. You may not recognize the name, but the music is timeless.
The Deja Crew, made of former members of Brookline Station, have been entertaining throughout the Ozarks since 2009. Adding banjo and the occasional cello, trumpet, violin, and accordion to the classic keys, guitars, and drums, the setlist spans multiple genres and decades.
Chris Schafer provides a fun collection of Irish folk songs, Brian Mattson will make you wonder if Justin Bieber just showed up in a millenial's body, and Amanda Clark will continue the laying down of sweet vocals. This established group under a new name reflecting their full acknowledgment that they are a cover band, and proud, looks forward to livening up any event or venue.
Join Jessamyn every Wednesday evening this June after her debut EP Consequences peaked at #46 on the Itunes top 200 Singer/songwriter Album Charts.
Originally solely a poet, Jessamyn began playing guitar 17 years ago as an outlet to create musical works of poetry. After falling in love with the guitar and with the craft of songwriting, she began playing shows at local coffeehouses and venues in Jonesboro, and Little Rock in Arkansas, as well as Springfield and Poplar Bluff, Missouri. Her performance schedule slowed down in 2007 when she became a full time high school English teacher, but she is back in the scene and ready to captivate audiences with her feminindie folk sound.

Featuring Jimmy Rea of the internationally-touring bluegrass band, The HillBenders, and Melissa Henderson Rea of local funk band Lilly Bee and The Pollinators, this talented married couple from Springfield, Missouri, loves to share their musical love story. With a mix of original songs and favorite classics, they have a diverse sound that draws from rock, pop, folk, and soul influences.
Jimmy and Melissa met in 2005 when they both joined Beatles tribute band, The Silver Hammer Band; and have continued to play in numerous groups together, including The Refugees, Shattered!, The American Pennyroyals, and The Hot Club of Springfield. They married in 2014, and they’ll both agree that their greatest collaboration has been their adorable 2-year-old, Archie (who’s already showing promise on drums).
