The amazing Heathen Creek returns to the Nelson Town Hall, with caller Don Primrose at the helm.

Heathen Creek” is what happens when contra music has a head-on collision with Gen-X. Rutman’s scorching fiddle soars while Johannsen (guitar) and Koyama (mandolin) lay down thunder and crunch that is equal parts Keith Murphy and Kurt Cobain. Blissfully tired contra dancers concur — the Heathens are all about rhythm, and they’re dead-on. But the trio plays lush too — sultry digressions full of lilt and peppered with caprice. From Pittsburgh to Peterborough, from Coeur D’Alene to Concord, Heathen Creek has been busting it up for seven years, filling the night with music and generally knocking the socks off all and sundry. rough, from Coeur D’Alene to Concord, Heathen Creek has been busting it up for seven years, filling the night with music and generally knocking the socks off all and sundry. oyama (mandolin) lay down thunder and crunch that is equal parts Keith Murphy and Kurt Cobain.
