Lindley Creek has been a favorite in the Valley for a number of years now. Currently nominated for the Valley Star Awards Family Vocal Group of the Year, the group did win the 2015 RGV Bluegrass and Folk Band of the Year.
Lindley Creek’s musical roots are strong, stemming from the Ozark Hills’ rich legacy of bluegrass and gospel music. They bring their unique and personal brand of acoustic music to the stage to delight all that attend their shows.
The group will be presenting their Faith, Family and Freedom show with Williamson Branch on Saturday, February 8 at Casa Del Sol (400 N. Val Verde Rd., Donna). There will be a performance at 2 and 7 p.m.
The event is going to be an exciting one with both groups performing and livening up the stage and crowd. The events will feature their grand finale Kid Jam set by the kids of both family bands. It’s surely going to be an event you don’t want to miss.
Lindley Creek features Kathie Greer on guitar, songwriting and vocals; husband, John Greer on bass; daughter, Katie Greer on mandolin, songwriting and lead vocals; and son, Jase Greer, on fiddle, songwriting and harmony vocals.
The family band started when Kathie and John were seeking music they could play around the house that the whole family could share and enjoy. Gospel music was already a part of their life, but one day bluegrass found its way into the mix, and it changed everything for the family. The love grew from hearing bluegrass music played in a Sunday School sit around, to making the decision to buy one instrument at a time – teach the kids, learn to play and sing.
They found what they loved and made it into something of their own. Fifteen years later, and without one member that went to college and now has his own family, Lindley Creek is enjoying their time developing their own bluegrass sound and entertaining people from Missouri, the Ozarks, to the Rio Grande Valley.
