Mercy Creek – Fri June 5 – 8 pm – $3
Mercy Creek is Jim Ball & Cheryl Nystrom
Independent Music for Independent Minds since 1998
Based in Virginia, Mercy Creek performs original music they call aggressive folk rock. Singer/guitarist Cheryl Nystrom and song writing partner/drummer Jim Ball combine elements of modern folk, world beat, rock, and hints of blues and bluegrass to create music that is fresh and unique. From world beat to folk, the musical styles used in Mercy Creek’s songs are anchored by Nystrom’s beautiful voice and intelligent lyrics.
Mercy Creek has released 7 independent albums and have been a full time performing act since 1998, playing across the country at clubs, festivals, and concerts. Paul Mahern, (Iggy Pop, John Mellencamp, Juliana Hatfield, Lisa Germano, Over the Rhine, The Fray, vocalist for punk band Zero Boys) recorded and produced 6 of the band’s 7 CD catalogue. The recordings have charted on radio stations nationally, were used heavily in Playnetwork’s retail outlet store Eddie Baeur, have been used in nationally syndicated radio shows, and have been played on XM Radio.
