Enjoy live music by Mercy Creek on Wednesday, July 23rd. Based in Virginia, Mercy Creek performs original music they call aggressive folk rock. Singer/guitarist Cheryl Nystrom and song writing partner/drummer Jim Ball combine elements of modern folk, world beat, rock, and hints of blues and bluegrass to create music that is fresh and unique. From world beat to folk, the musical styles used in Mercy Creek's songs are anchored by Nystrom's beautiful voice and intelligent lyrics.

Mercy Creek has released 7 independent albums and have been a full time performing act since 1998, playing across the country at clubs, festivals, and concerts. Paul Mahern, (Iggy Pop, John Mellencamp, Juliana Hatfield, Lisa Germano, Over the Rhine, The Fray, vocalist for punk band Zero Boys) recorded and
produced 6 of the band's 7 CD catalogue. The recordings have charted on radio stations nationally, were used heavily in Playnetwork's retail outlet store Eddie Baeur, have been used in nationally syndicated radio shows, and have been played on XM Radio.

Mercy Creek's latest recording, "Make a Memory" features 10 original songs recorded with Paul Mahern. The impressive vocals and guitar playing of Cheryl Nystrom span tracks ranging from rock to folk. Ball's unusual African Djembe kick drum and at times intense fusion drumming sync to well crafted and well
produced songs. With it's big organic sound, Mercy Creek's "Make a Memory" brings audiences to a bright and familiar place. Constantly touring and writing new material, Mercy Creek is now working on their 8th release.
