Saint Julien’s Creek Revival
Formed in 2016 out of “NorFOLK, VA”, the musicians of Saint Juliens Creek Revival were brought together through the local bluegrass picking circles. Recognizing a mutual love of roots music and three-part harmony, they soon branched off to explore their own sound, and Saint Juliens Creek Revival was born. The band’s mission is to engage the community in roots music by bringing an eclectic a mixture of folk, Americana, bluegrass, gospel, and original tunes to its audiences. The varied backgrounds of its members provide a unique combination of musical styles that is both contemporary and steeped in tradition, with influences ranging from 19th Century parlor tunes to Western Swing to Rock & Roll. Saint Juliens Creek Revival is making plans to record their first demo soon.
