Lindley Creek to return to Sibyl Center

On Saturday at 7 p.m., the bluegrass band Lindley Creek will be returning to the Sibyl Center stage in Stanley for another performance.

Hailing from the Ozark Mountains and the prairie lands of Missouri, 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 story of Lindley Creek began over a decade ago when the Greer Family discovered the bluegrass music. As a young couple, John and Kathie enjoyed country music but as they raised their children Katie, Jase, and Tate, they looked for music they could all play together without the common country music themes of cheating and drinking.

A local Sunday school teacher introduced them to bluegrass music and they named themselves Lindley Creek. As the Greer clan became more proficient and practiced, they gradually became a full-time, traveling band.

Their evolution as a band has brought them to the point of a unique musical style.

Eventually, the Greer family visited Nashville and the end result is Lindley Creek’s new recording, “Freedom, Love and the Open Road,” the album they wanted to make all along. Tight and smooth family harmonies are present and it showcases the lead singing talents of Katie Greer who draws her inspiration from many genres of contemporary music.

Admission to the Lindley Creek performance is by suggested donation of $10 at the door. Refreshments will follow.
