Ophir Creek Transparent.jpg


Ophir Creek is a Utah group working to redefine the folk, bluegrass and southern gospel tradition, and to keep it burning with an exciting new sound: “Folkgrass Americana”, the members have performed variously at Olympic venues, county fairs, Utah city celebrations, and numerous community and church functions throughout northern Utah; 60’s coffee houses in Pennsylvania and Maryland, night clubs in Hong Kong, Jamaica and Florida; and Bluegrass gigs in Tennessee and Idaho. Collectively they have over 250 years of performance experience. The band performs a range of songs from soft ballads that tug at the heart to rollicking banjo supported slices of Americana.

Members, from the northern Utah area, and all providing vocals, are Dave Shurtleff, guitar 6 & 12 string; Dale Searcy, guitar, resonator and baritone; John Sargent, guitar, mandolin, banjo; Keith Ray, bass; Don “Ban Jovi” Messenger, hot bluegrass banjo, and Ken Bradshaw, guitar and banjo.

Concerts on the hill has been proud to have Ophir Creek as our house band since 2017.
