Cincinnati Creek

Cincinnati Creek

Cincinnati Creek, a local group that took its name from a stream that flows through northern Oneida County, returns to Park Coffee House in Holland Patent on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 7:30 PM.

The four seasoned musicians entertain with their signature blend of bluegrass, gospel, pop tunes, and original songs. Lori Thompson sings lead and harmony vocals and plays the guitar and mandolin. She also is a prolific songwriter, taking inspiration from friends , family, and history from the Civil War to local events from past decades. Chris Pepe plays banjo for every tune. His fancy picking and good humor, plus some harmony singing, are great additions to the group’s appeal. Gary Dygert plays guitar, dobro, and mandolin, plus he sings both lead and harmony vocals. Gary’s talents as a musicologist brings many interesting songs to Cincinnati Creek’s repertoire. Cathy Martin plays the stand up bass, adds fine vocal harmonies, and sings a few solos as well. This multi-talented group member also performs locally with the Generations Community Choir and the Steuben Players.

Cincinnati Creek performs a variety of acoustic music styles, including originals by Lori, with upbeat rhythms, three and four part harmonies, with plenty of fun thrown in. Come on out and enjoy this warm and lively group.

Apple crisp and other homemade desserts will be available for a donation before the show and during the intermission. The refreshments, including coffee and other beverages, are prepared and served by Park Coffee House volunteers. Proceeds benefit the food pantry operated by local non-denominational charity Foothills Rural Community Ministry.

Doors open at 7:00 PM for the 7:30 PM show time. Admission is $12.00, $5.00 for students, and no charge for children 12 and younger.

Park Coffee House is located in the village of Holland Patent, at the historic Twin Churches, just off Main Street (NYS Route 365), across from the park.
