Butterfield Creek, the band, hales from Chicago's southland. We're a four-piece that features solid musicianship on guitars, banjo, and upright bass, backing up the fantastic, Rachel Lewis on lead vocals. Under the umbrella of Americana music, we include acoustic renditions of rock/pop classics and off-the-beaten-track favorites. We add a few traditional/bluegrass numbers, some new-grass, a few classic country songs, and for good measure, we throw in a smattering of hooky originals that fans request the most.  We can do shows/sets that lean into our cover material, and others that lean into our original material. 

Butterfield Creek, the waterway, is a 15.2-mile-long (24.5 km) tributary of Thorn Creek near Chicago, IL. Via Thorn Creek, it is part of the Calumet River watershed flowing to Lake Michigan. It is at its widest around the towns of HomewoodChicago Heights and Glenwood.
