Spring Creek: New Album

Spring Creek releases WAY UP ON A MOUNTAIN

Spring Creek
Spring Creek, the award-winning young bluegrass band from Lyons, CO, will release Way Up on a Mountain on May 5, 2009. It is their third CD and their first on a bluegrass label - Rebel Records.

Spring Creek will celebrate the release of Way Up on a Mountain with a special performance at the Boulder Theater on May 9 at 8:00 p.m. Martha Scanlan, formerly of the Reel Time Travelers, will open the show, with the Blue Maddies featuring KC Groves of Uncle Earl also appearing. Tickets are $14 and are available in advance at the Boulder Theater Box Office at 2032 14th Street in Boulder or online at bouldertheater.com.

These musical road warriors have held tight to the bluegrass tradition, emulating the first generation greats while presenting a youthful, fresh sound. They eat, sleep and drink their craft within a musical community steeped in bluegrass. Never satisfied with the ordinary, these four voraciously search for unique or little-known songs, which they mold and shape through intricate instrumental arrangements and pristine vocal harmonies.

In 2009, Spring Creek joined the ranks of Ralph Stanley, Kenny & Amanda Smith and Steep Canyon Rangers as a Rebel Records recording artist. Spring Creek's creative original songs and meticulous harmony vocals caught the attention of the nearly 50 year-old Charlottesville, Virginia, bluegrass label — which has never signed a Colorado-based band. Spring Creek recorded this past winter at Notably Fine Audio in Denver with famed Nashville sideman and producer Jeff White (Vince Gill, Alison Krauss and Union Station).
