The Crandall Creek Band was started by Moundsville, WV native, Jerry Andrews in November 2015. It is made up of talented musicians from the tristate region of the Ohio Valley. They create a dynamic high energy fusion that combines folk stylings with bluegrass music.
Crandall Creek offers a blend of familiar traditional songs, with original tunes that showcase stories of Appalachian love, coal mining and gospel at its best.
Crandall Creek’s sound is soulful, pure and true, as one would expect coming from the Blueridge mountains. The band’s debut 2019 release, Goin’ Down Home, features original traditional bluegrass songs and was recorded in West Virginia. They are still developing a solid sound as some of the members are young and still growing into their own talent.
Spreading the love of Bluegrass music and the spirit of fun to their audience is their number one priority. It shows through every performance on stage that they love what they do! Each performance offers a family experience that is entertaining and suitable for all ages.
Crandall Creek band gives more than just music to its community, the Moundsville, West Virginia-based band also makes a point to donate money from its shows to various deserving charities. Jerry Andrews, the leader of the band decided to take their act of giving a step further when beginning an organization that would support his surrounding community with education and culture.
In 2015, Bluegrass Music Endeavors Foundation, Crandall Creek’s Jerry Andrews (Founder and Executive Director) created 501c3 who’s mission statement is to producing first-rate bluegrass concerts that raise funds for charities and educational workshops to residents of Northern Panhandle of West Virginia and neighboring Ohio and West Virginia. The band Crandall Creek became a driving force behind this foundation through their music.
