For a musical experience you're sure to enjoy, check out the authentic sounds of Gunpowder Creek. This acoustic duo combines the down home flavor of the Stanley Brothers along with the sounds of contemporary American acoustic music. Forrest Utley and Ben Pedigo have performed in Northern Kentucky and in the Cincinnati area for years and make up Gunpowder Creek.

Visitors to Main Strauss in Covington, Kentucky will remember Forrest Utley singing and performing at the Strauss House. Forrest plays guitar, harmonica and has a soulful voice reminiscent of Carter Stanley. Forrest has an original style of playing that is enjoyable and engaging for listeners. His harmony singing brings out the old time flavor of a song and also adds a unique quality to the music.

Bluegrass enthusiasts will remember Ben Pedigo as a performer on the Julia Belle Swain excursion boat. Ben has performed and recorded with Norman Blake, and toured with Bill Monroe. Ben's mandolin playing and singing are a great compliment to Forrest's vocals and guitar work. Ben also picks five string banjo.

Gunpowder Creek is great entertainment for private parties, festivals and outdoor events. Their acoustic show is sure to please all audiences and their down home style is a refreshing addition to any event.
