Live music will be provided by the Chapel Hill bluegrass band Big Fat Gap, and The Holland Brothers. For a fun keepsake, be sure to capture your experience in the ZimZoom photo booth!

Concert on the Green
No cover charge
Swift Creek’s name pays tribute to the origins of this Americana/Bluegrass band, formed six years ago in Central NC near meandering Swift Creek. Their highly original songs feature strong traditional and progressive bluegrass influences, a touch of country and a healthy dose of folk. Driving guitar and bass support the band’s signature three-part harmony singing, punctuated with impressive mandolin, fiddle and banjo solos.
The lineup is Kevin Brown, whose strong tenor leads, rhythm guitar and songwriting frame the band’s sound; Casey Elder, expertly playing the mandolin and dobro; award-winning fiddler Stephen Fraleigh, also playing the banjo; bassist Dennis Hoyle setting the beat; and vocalist Ann Searcy, adding bluesy leads and spot-on harmony singing.
Swift Creek’s debut CD ‘Winner Winner Chicken Dinner’ was produced at The Rubber Room in Chapel Hill and released in August 2012. Tracks from the CD have been featured on radio, including WQDR’s ‘Pinecone Bluegrass’ show and WUNC’s ‘Back Porch Music’.
‘Magnolia’, the band’s sophomore album, was released on April 8, 2016. Brown’s songwriting is prominently featured on the new tracks which have a unique Southern vibe.
Swift Creek reached the 100-show milestone recently with performances at many well-known area venues.
Band Member Bios:
Kevin Brown-Guitar, banjo, vocals, songwriter. Kevin formed the Blue Moon Band in the late 1970’s at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, along with Mack Bailey (current member of the Limeliters) and Jim DeWan (Chicago-based Irish musician). He has continued playing and singing throught the years with various groups. Kevin is a songwriter whose works have been recorded by Glenn Yarborough, The Limeliters, The Hard Travelers, Mack Bailey, Seamus Kennedy, Dick Foley & Terry Lauber (The Brothers Four) and Carl Allen. Kevin’s strong tenor and unique guitar stylings drive the Swift Creek sound.
Casey Elder-Mandolin, guitar, dobro, vocals. Casey grew up in Forest, VA, playing both saxophone and electric bass in high school bands, and listening to a lot of Doc Watson and Muddy Waters. Bluegrass guitar was his next musical accomplishment when attending Virginia Tech, followed by learning mandolin while living in Colorado in 2002. His favorites on mandolin are David Grisman, Chris Thile and Jesse McReynolds. After moving back east, he played with various honky-tonk, bluegrass and old time bands around Blacksburg, VA, and learned yet another instrument, the dobro. Audiences love Casey’s smokin’ mandolin solos.
Stephen Fraleigh-Fiddle, banjo, vocals. The band’s newest member, Stephen hails from Akron, OH. He is a two-time bluegrass fiddle winner of one of the oldest music competitions in the country, the Galax Old-Time Fiddlers’ Convention. After starting the Suzuki violin method at age six, he heard bluegrass at the age of eight and has fiddled for nearly 40 years, starting with three years with The Young Blades of Bluegrass (1979 winner of the Bean Blossom Band contest and a performance on the Grand Ole Opry). He also spent 10 years with Beanpole and the Bluegrass Mountaineers and a couple of long stints with The Jeanette Williams Band in Danville, VA. He has been a session player in the Raleigh area on bluegrass, country and Americana recordings.
Dennis Hoyle-Bass. From his early years of practicing scales on the ivories, to honking the biggest horn in the high school marching band (that would be a tuba), to singing in the church choir, music has always been important to Dennis. After playing guitar in small groups and jams for over 20 years, he went back to his favorite low-end sound and plays both electric and double bass. Most recently, he played for two years with a local band doing numerous gigs around the Triangle and beyond. He is influenced by all kinds of music including folk, rock, blues, funk and jazz. His bass heroes include Paul McCartney, Jaco Pastorius and James “The Hook” Jamerson. Dennis keeps the beat and gets in some great licks.
Ann Searcy-Vocals, band manager. Ann grew up in Smithfield, NC, and has been singing choral music and solos since childhood in school/college groups, church choirs and community choruses. She was instrumental in starting Swift Creek Revival (now Swift Creek) after a successful two-year stint with a local acoustic group. Some of her vocal favorites are Emmylou Harris, Allison Krauss, Gillian Welch and Bonnie Raitt. Singing harmony is Ann’s “thing,” and she listens to the Eagles, CCR, The Beatles and plenty of bluegrass for pointers. In her time with Swift Creek, she has gotten in touch with her bluesy side with some soulful solos.
