[Fountain, NC] Dirk Lumbard and the Steve Creech Jazz All-Stars return to Fountain General Store this Saturday night for a Valentine’s Day celebration with Broadway songs and dances.
Among Lumbard’s six Broadway performance credits are starring roles in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Music Man and Barnum. He has also become a regional star with the North Carolina Theatre in Raleigh since moving to the Edgecombe County community of Old Sparta four years ago. He teaches tap dancing at ECU.
Creech, the Greenville-based guitarist and impresario, brings an outstanding jazz band to Fountain several times a year. His band for this show is all new to Fountain audiences: Jim Gilliam on keyboards; Michael Stephenson on saxophone; Stephan Pryor on bass; and Don Stewart on drums. Several of Lumbard’s students will also perform.
