Up Fish Creek is a wonderfully produced CD recording that was specifically written, arranged and produced to appeal to All Ages.

For it offers a delightful mix of upbeat positive themes and varied musical styles that bounce around from Folk, Bluegrass to Rock-Grass and the Blues.

The thoughtfully written themes encompass topics we all can relate too; from love won and lost, to appreciating kindness and consideration, the joys of friendship and family, to caring for the environment.

While some deal with life’s inescapable challenges, but still carry messages of hope and joy.

We also decided to take a leap of faith and to share with you four delightfully arranged Instrumentals blended in amongst the songs, that we hope will set your imagination free as you discover a new and charming aspect of our music.

Starting off with the title track, Up Fish Creek; it’s a high octane Instrumental mix of Louisiana Swing and Celtic-like influences; intended to ignite your imaginative spirit and inspire you to get up and dance.

There are also two beautifully arranged European flavored Instrumentals featuring Accordion & Melodica.

We have also included a Celtic like Jig featuring clawhammer banjo, violin, penny whistles, flutes and wooden spoons. This Instrumental will have you tapping your feet, hugging the ones you love and dancing uncontrollably.

With that in mind, imagine going to a wonderful music festival in the park and discovering that there is something here for everyone - young and old alike, and, everyone is having fun, as you wander from stage to stage.

And, or, maybe you might just find a picnic table under a shady tree, by the creek, hang out and have your lunch, enjoy the music, and have some fun.

We hope you enjoy listening to Up Fish Creek, and find it in your heart to play them for your family and friends, young and old alike.
