    Swift Creek’s name pays tribute to the origins of this Americana/Bluegrass band, formed six years ago in Central NC near meandering Swift Creek. Their highly original songs feature strong traditional and progressive bluegrass influences, a touch of country and a healthy dose of folk. Driving guitar and bass support the band’s signature three-part harmony singing, punctuated with impressive mandolin, fiddle and banjo solos.

    The lineup is Kevin Brown, whose strong tenor leads, rhythm guitar and songwriting frame the band’s sound; Casey Elder, expertly playing the mandolin and dobro; award-winning fiddler Stephen Fraleigh, also playing the banjo; bassist Dennis Hoyle setting the beat; and vocalist Ann Searcy, adding bluesy leads and spot-on harmony singing.

    Swift Creek’s debut CD ‘Winner Winner Chicken Dinner’ was produced at The Rubber Room in Chapel Hill, NC and released in August 2012. Tracks from the CD have been featured on radio, including WQDR’s ‘Pinecone Bluegrass’ show and WUNC’s ‘Back Porch Music.’

    ‘Magnolia’, the band’s sophomore album was released on April 8, 2016. Brown’s songwriting is prominently featured on the new tracks which have a unique Southern vibe. Swift Creek reached the 100-show milestone recently, with performances at many well-known area venues.
