Fredericksburg Songwriters' Showcase Carey Creed

Carey CreedCarey Creed is a contemporary folkie whose songs are influenced by her years in Celtic, Big Band, Black Gospel, and Folk-Rock groups. She has been a top winner in the Songwriters Association of Washington contest, including First Place in the Folk and Gospel categories. The Washington Post calls her voice lovely … warm … naturally tuneful.

Subjects in her writing include: a true adoption story with an O. Henry finish; an Andrews Sisters/Tin Pan Alley-style ditty about a little wallet searching for a worthy owner; a delicate setting of an ancient Vietnamese poem; and a lullaby about not having to go to sleep.

Carey’s music has been used in films to promote the use of hospice and to raise awareness about an interfaith coalition. Two songs have also been covered by Grace Griffith on the Blix Street label.

Peace of Wild Things, her latest CD on the Azalea City label, has charted repeatedly on community and public radio stations, receiving folk/eclectic airplay worldwide.

You can find Carey playing piano, guitar, and singing her heart out at folk festivals and concerts, plus fundraisers, places of worship, nursing homes, and retreats.
