About Us

Our Story

image68

 Doug Farrell, Steve Dionne, and Jack Henry are each accomplished NH  musicians, singer/songwriters, and performers who together are - Decatur  Creek.  The 2016 addition of Beth Eldridge (The Bradford Bog People and  The Hardtacks) on fiddle, vocals, and guitar has taken the band to  another level.  Their diverse styles complement one another and the  group's evolving original acoustic sound will bring a smile to your  face, rhythm to your feet, and leave you wanting for more.  Doug and  Steve handle most lead vocals and guitar with forays on harmonica,  percussion, and mandolin (Doug).  They have written most of the songs  posted to date (except Southbound Train and Rain- by Jack, and Main  Street - co-written by Jack and Doug) and most of the band's original  tunes.  Jack handles the bass, most harmony vocals, some lead vocals,  rhythm and lead guitar, dobro, electric lap steel,  and high-string  guitar, so far...!   Beth shines on the fiddle and adds rhythm guitar  along with her solid lead and harmony vocals.   The band's influences  run from traditional/roots to Americana - country, singer/songwriter,  folk, blues, and rock - always with the focus on the songs, lyrics, and  vocals.

Despite sharing many of the same interests and pastimes, we all are inspired by different things that lead us to work seamlessly in a creative setting. We take turns writing lyrics so we are all invested in each song and its meaning.
