Music on the Square brings Wolf Creek to the courthouse steps in Jonesborough tonight from 7-9:30.
Wolf Creek is a five piece band from East Tennessee. Their music is an eclectic blend of bluegrass, classic country, blues and rock ’n’ roll.
Formed in November 2007, Wolf Creek is the creative collaboration of five seasoned entertainers immersed in the craft of traditional and eclectic mountain music. Each of these musicians bring to this group a rich background performing music in a variety of acts playing some of the top venues and events in East Tennessee, Western North Carolina and Southwest Virginia, including Bristol Rhythm & Roots, Blue Plum, The Down Home, Paramount Theater, Twilight Alive, The Carter Fold and more.
The core influence of this band is bluegrass, with a good mixture of classic country and Americana/ Roots. Among the elements that make up their sound is the music of Flatt & Scruggs, The Country Gentlemen, Seldom Scene, Doc Watson, Jimmy Martin, The Stanley Brothers, Tony Rice, Carl Jackson and Ricky Skaggs.
While strongly acoustic based, the music of Wolf Creek is augmented with the punch and power of drums and electric bass, along with the twang of the Telecaster, flavoring the music with the classic West Coast sounds of Buck Owens and Outlaw Country a la Waylon Jennings.
Combining these elements with the many other styles each of these players bring to the group, Wolf Creek is creating a sound that is unique and fresh yet classic and timeless. Wolf Creek, the band’s name, was derived from the song of the same name by Dan Fogelberg, which was performed by some of the bands biggest influences, including Doc Watson, Herb Pedersen, David Grisman and Jerry Douglas.
