This band has been a staple with the Pittsburgh bluegrass scene for many years. Beaver Creek has made a great impact on fans throughout Pennsylvania and beyond. Since their inception in the early ’80s, the band has traveled extensively, spreading their own brand of bluegrass music, weaving stories of life, love, loss and salvation — and winning plenty of fans along the way. Their sound remains fresh and vibrant and their stage performance immediately connects with audiences of all ages. From the beginning, the vocal cornerstone of the group has been the combination of Mary (guitar) and Randy Ord (guitar and bass) of Harmony, Pa.
Their blend is unmistakable and reflects the years they’ve spent singing together. When one adds the soulful vocals of Fombell, Pa.’s Bernie Cunningham (mandolin, guitar and bass) to the mix, it becomes a special treat. Their great singing is supported by the stellar banjo and fiddle work of Latrobe’s Don Shean. Local fans are well aware of the instrumental talents of both Don and Bernie through their years of working together as members of Pittsburgh’s Dog Run Boys and Second Wind bands.
