Bastardizing bluegrass since 2011

The Fish Creek Rodeo started out (and can be seen most often) as a duo comprised of Jeremy Petrie and Liz Simchik. They are sometimes joined by percussionist Jack Smith, guitarist Tom O'Rourke, and bassist Carl Pickett. Once in a while our dear friends Jes Sheldon, and Benny Carrier can be seen and heard with this outfit. The group has a sound that is remniscient of John Prine and Iris Dement but captured in a modern outlaw sound. Dysfunctional love songs with a twinge of old country.
