Steve Creech Sextet

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this concert:

The Steve Creech Sextet returns to Fountain General Store for a big Saturday night jazz concert that will feature vocalist Carolyn Greene Myers.

Creech, the Greenville guitarist and band leader, regularly assembles a band of regional talent for his shows in Fountain that have featured an outstanding variety of featured vocalists. Myers has recently relocated to Greenville, after a 22 year career in music education in Virginia. She was supervisor of music education for the Chesapeake public schools and was also a frequent guest soloist with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, the Virginia Chorale, and the Virginia Beach Symphony.

Myers earned B.A. and M.A. degrees in music education and performance from ECU; she is currently an adjunct instructor at ECU’s School of Music.

Joining Creech this evening is Les Sutorious on trumpet, Dennis McGaughy on tenor and alto sax and clarinet; Keith Dobbins on bass; and Randy Davis on drums.

Lily James will be a featured guest vocalist. She is a 10-year-old Greenville singer who has already played the role of Gretel in The Sound of Music with the North Carolina Theater in Memorial Auditorium in Raleigh. Lily also studies violin with Sarah Lang.

The Steve Creech Sextet’s March 8 concert begins at 7:30 p.m. General admission is $8; reserved seats are $10.

Future Creech shows at RAF are set for April 12, when Peggy Vaughan will be featured vocalist; May 10 with featured vocalist Eva Cortens and drummer Jon Wacker; and June 14 with featured vocalist Pat Tutino.
