The Strings of Indian Creekis a folk rock band based out of Southern Indiana. It was 10 years ago that Chris Bell (singer/songwriter, vocals, acoustic guitar, banjo, and harmonica), and Arianna Barton (singer/songwriter, vocals, guitar), started writing and playing music together. In 2017 Brandon Bambusch joined on drums, and in 2020, Anna Blanton was added to the lineup on fiddle and backing vocals after recording a few tracks on their debut album, Tales Untold.
In 2021, they released their sophomore album, Dancing With The Lightning, mixed and produced by Cory Pollard of House Productions in New Albany. They recently shared a video for the song “The Ballad of Billy McCoy”, filmed by Johnny Goebel.
