Hawthorn Creek

HAWTHORN CREEK is Craig Olson and Lisa Letchworth playing smoky, sultry, swamp music, plus lots of Craig's original songs and some fun sing-along tunes. Craig's music has been featured on regional and international radio, an Italian car commercial, and the BBC. His 4 albums have collectively sold over 50,000 copies and he toured the east coast and Europe with the seminal Celtic-rock band Coyote Run.

Lisa is a classically trained vocalist who has sung professionally with both the San Francisco Symphony Chorale, and the San Mateo Masterworks Chorale. She has long since hung up the Opera horns, and now loves nothing more than singing some down-home tunes with Hawthorn Creek.

This time at the Beach store Cafe, they'll be joined once again by guitarist Johnny Dennis and Joe Marx on percussion. Looking forward to bringing you a little bayou, a little whiskey, and a great night of music!
