Music at the Market: Tess Creasy

We’re so thankful to MFM vendor, Spice of Africa, for introducing us to the talents of Tess Creasy, who will be playing the market this Sunday, September 24th, starting at 11:00. Here’s her intro:

“My name is Tess Creasy. I am fourteen years old and absolutely in love with music. Ever since, well, forever, I’ve been singing, and songwriting was one of my passions from a very early age as well. I play guitar, piano, ukulele and, of course, I sing! If you’re one to categorize, my genre would be considered “indie pop.” My new album captures a certain wild, raw feeling. It is lovely and honest and powerful. It is my diary, my life, on a CD. Songs to which the world will dance, sing, fall in love. Together, we’ll do this. Are you ready?”

We’ll also have traditional Irish tunes starting at 12:30 thanks to market neighbor, Joe Reidy, and his trio!

Montavilla Farmers Market is an important part of my week. I have developed relationships with customers I see week after week, year after year, shopping with their families. This market feels like the heart of the community when I regularly see hugs and greetings exchanged between friends while shopping. I am glad to feel part of this vibrant community.

One of the best compliments I can receive is, “My family won’t eat any other jam now!” I’m proud to say that I source many of my ingredients from this market. The money from my sales stays very local since I often leave the market with my car full of berries and fruit for my next batches of jam. So, even within the farmers and vendors, there is cooperation to support one another.

I have worked at many Farmer’s Markets, but no others have the warm sense of community that I find at Montavilla.
