1799196_231139660411574_322703251_oThe Creekside re-emerges as a live music venue after a few months hiatus, and will be hosting a new event featuring local musicians/artists who perform original music: “Wednesdays Unplugged” begins March 19th from 8 to 10PM when Progressive Country artist Corey Ryan Hagar takes the stage. The Creekside is located in Hurricane, off Route 34.

The events will be held bi-weekly, and will feature acoustic-based music of all genres, rock/pop, country/progressive country, bluegrass, jazz, blues etc. The idea is to showcase local/regional musicians who are promoting their original music in a unique, listening room environment.

By “Listening Room’s” Creekside is aiming for the concept that became popular in the 1960’s and is hallmarked by an ongoing dialogue between the artists and crowd during the show about the music. It helps listeners to not only become familiar with the singer/writer, but to better grasp the stories behind the songs. Think of it as a cross between “Storytellers” and “Unplugged,” in an intimate setting.

It all kicks off this Wednesday when Corey Hagar takes the spotlight. In the coming weeks you can hear Jordan Searles, Terry Schulz and Sheldon Vance, Andy Parks and more great acoustic songwriters on the Creekside stage.
