Old Time American Music and Song
WHAT WE DO
East Creek Union, formed in 2011, is Scott Simmons (lead vocals, banjo and guitar), Bob Tracey (fiddle) and Pete Young (bass, mandolin and guitar). The band is based in North Essex and plays festivals, concert halls, theatres and pubs throughout England.
The band name originated from a public poll when Scott and Bob first played as a duo at the Maverick Festival back in 2012. The ‘union’ concept has been put to good effect allowing the band to work as a duo, trio or as a bigger band to meet event requirements,
