"Paint Branch Creek" is an acoustic College Park musical collaboration, rooted firmly in Americana. Their original songs feature the rich guitar and bold harmonies of local favorites Eric Maring (Mr. M), Allison Hughes, Greg Heelan, Patrick Lynch, and Arun Ivatury, with lyrics by Eric Olson. For more than two years, these songs have quietly come to life during late College Park nights. They represent slices of America, from trains and farms, to night shifts and mill towns. Some reflect on where we've been, some question where we're going, and some just linger on old memories.
Paint Branch Creek brings an exciting weekend of music to the Old Parish House where they've previously held tributes to Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and the Beatles' Abbey Road record among others. This two night performance features a full collection of original songs as well as some traditional favorites with special guests including Rocky Korr and the next generation. Bring yourselves, your families, your voices.
