On Dec. 13, Gold Creek — Clayton Parsons, Connor Foote and Zack Silveris — is coming to Creston for a concert at the Snoring Sasquatch.
These three young performers are the latest link in a roots musical legacy that goes way back past the beginning of the 20th century. Over the past 100 years, there have been a number of illustrious performers who have left their mark on a musical genre that includes folk, blues, bluegrass, western swing and country.
In the never-ending quest for fame, fortune and popularity most the younger performers of today have strayed from the true path of music rooted in earthy values. Not so Gold Creek. Their music reeks of an authenticity based on their personal experiences and honed by the musical craft handed down from their families — Foote’s grandfather is Ed King, a Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame inductee.
The trio is quick on their verbal feet, fleet of fingers on their instruments, have a wonderful relaxed stage presence and are thoroughly entertaining.
Tickets are $10 in advance at Buffalo Trails Coffee House, Kingfisher Used Books and Black Bear Books, and $13 at the door, which opens at 6 p.m.; the show begins at 7.
