Paint Branch Creek
Featuring musicians Eric Maring, Allison Hughes, Greg Heelan, Patrick Lynch and Arun Ivatury, with lyrics by Eric Olson, Paint Branch Creek is an acoustic musical collaboration rooted firmly in Americana. The group’s original songs conjure visions of America: night shifts and mill towns, prairie lands and open road.
Paint Branch Creek casts a musical spell that delights fans of acoustic performance. Evocative lyrics inspire the group’s bold original music–whether delicate or hard-driving, each song is unforgettable. Paint Branch Creek has created deep connections with its enthusiastic audiences and earned loyal fans. Engaging and personable on stage, the group creates shows that are thoroughly entertaining, deeply moving and not to be missed!
This event is part of NextNOW Fest. The Clarice’s NextNOW Fest is an inspiring arts experience that celebrates imagination, creativity and community. By amplifying the voices of intriguing, inventive artists from around campus and our community, NextNOW Fest creates a forward-looking microcosm where art transforms our future and (re)connects us all.
NextNOW Fest is a signature event in University of Maryland's new Arts for All initiative, which leverages the combined power of the arts, technology and social justice to address the grand challenges of our time. In addition to our traditional student, academic and touring arts lineup at The Clarice on Sep 17 and 18, we’re thrilled to forge new partnerships with more student-led groups, academic departments and community organizations to expand the festival to seven days at sites throughout campus and into College Park!
In support of Arts for All, NextNOW Fest events at The Hall CP are generously sponsored by Terrapin Development Company.
