The Collins Public Library will host bluegrass musicians Creek Band during a free concert at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21. The Buffalo-based band has been serving up bluegrass music for 30 years. The group features banjo, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, harmonica and accordion.
The band includes Phil Banaszak on fiddle, who was inducted into the North American Fiddlers’ Hall of Fame in 2005; Rich Schaefer, an original member of Creek Bend, playing bass and lead and bass vocals; Chris Panfil, who has traveled around the country playing bluegrass, and now plays guitar and mandolin and sings tenor and lead; and Mark Panfil, who has played with Creek Bend since 1983, and is the man on the dobro, but also plays fiddle and harmonica.
Creek Bend features talented musicians who will make you laugh, sing and learn a few things during your time with them.
