This past Saturday, we held another BMEF Pickin' And A Givin' concert series event. The house itself was not packed. Don't take that the wrong way. We had a really nice sized crowd, but it was the stage that was jam packed with pure talent throughout the entire night. The opener alone was enough talent to get your ten dollars' worth. Though he was alone, local legend, Roger Hoard is a big enough talent to fill any stage.Next up was another local talent, the group Bridges. They masterfully walked the audience down memory lane for a little while playing some familiar classic hits.Finally, Crandall Creek headlined the show. When the band began, they had a few songs of their own and had to rely heavily on cover songs. That is no longer the case. They have proven that they are not only talented performers, but also skillful song writers as well. They have plenty of their own songs now, and announced that they have recently cut their debut album, "Going Down Home". The CD should be available for purchase soon.Crandall Creek is known to allow others the opportunity to shine. They were gracious enough to bring an incredible guitarist, Bruce Winges, of Akron, OH up for a couple of numbers...and also another young local talent, Stevie Lynn performed a couple as well.It truly was a night and stage jam packed with so much talent!
