Americana Singer-Songwriter performs in hometown



Local Americana singer and songwriter, Anna Vaughn Creech will grace the stage 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 14 at Saint Anne's Chapel in Tarboro with an acoustic guitar filled night of folk and rock music that is sure to keep audience members highly entertained and on their feet.

Creech will perform all original pieces as she headlines the concert with Nick Bailey, Americana singer and songwriter. The two have performed together in Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Tipsy Tea Cup in Greenville. Their prior duet performance one year ago sparked their interest to share the stage once more all for the love of music.

When it comes to writing, Creech is inspired by personal relationships, her aspirations in life and everything that provokes her emotions and creativity.

"Song writing and performing is a way to challenge myself," said Creech. "There is an adrenaline rush there and a feeling of accomplishment after each show. It's kind of addictive and I get a real fulfillment from it."

At the age of 27, the Tarboro native began her life as an artist 7 years ago. Creech said that she is very excited to perform at Saint Anne's Chapel along with Bailey.

Bailey has his own band called Nick and the Babes. His lyrical content revolves around the art of storytelling. Relationships, family, friends and everyday matters inspire him to write from the perspective of others.

Opening act and acoustic singer-songwriter, Rebekah Todd was described as a singer with a "soulful voice" by Bailey.

All in all, this show is expected to inspire and entertain an audience representative of all walks of life in the historic town of Tarboro.
