Bean Creek is a California bluegrass band that prides itself on song selection and delivery. They search for songs that have been lost or under-appreciated and make them their own, while still tapping into the bluegrass tradition of the original vocal rendition. They have carved a niche for themselves among critical and experienced bluegrass fans as the “real thing”. More suede than patent leather, Bean Creek wants to sing and play as it was done in times past. The band has been playing together for 17 years, have 2 CDs under their belt and a third one currently underway. The concert is on Saturday, October 6, in the Red Barn at the Los Osos Community Park. Doors open at 4:30pm, the potluck and potluck jam band start at 5:00pm, and the performance is at 6:00pm.
More about the band
Billy Pitrone (vocals, guitar) pens songs that tell a story, and sings ‘em like he was there. He has the unmistakable voice of a natural singer, and he pours his soul into every verse.
Sarah Eblen (vocals, bass) has a pure clear voice that blends seamlessly with her bandmates, and her bass playing keeps the group on the rails.
Rob Horgan (banjo) is equally at home driving a Scruggs-style break, galloping along with an open back, or pulling in stylings of the melodic players, and he blends it all together with clarity and precision.
Peter Hicks (vocals, fiddle, mandolin) with his rough hewn fiddle strokes, honky-tonk voice and edgy mandolin, conjures up great old bluegrass, and great old country on mandolin, fiddle and vocals.
