Kimbrey Havens '07 Getting Notice on the Music Scene
While she was at Denison, biology major Kimbrey Havens ‘07 played and performed with Bluegrass musicians - and it got into her blood.
Today, she’s a founding member of the Bluegrass band Israel Creek — her husband is a member too, and they have a five-month-old baby who’s tagging along to concerts.
According to a recent article, “Israel Creek’s sound is ‘neo-folk,’ but the band has recently been working to distinguish themselves from The Secondhand Ramblers and delve deeper into traditional bluegrass, according to Havens. She’s introduced songs from artists like Alison Krauss into the band’s set list, and they also play a handful of original titles that she, Dunn and Blecman have all written independently.”
