Jerry Andrews


Crandall Creek came into being in 2015 when Jerry decided he wanted to start a bluegrass band. Jerry also had an interest in songwriting and some stories to tell. He brought together a bluegrass band that created its own music with an ear toward the mountain harmonies he heard as a child.  Jerry is a native of Moundsville, West Virginia. He is an avid fly fisherman who has devoted a good part of his life to trying to catch every trout in every river and stream in the Mountain State.

Kathy Wigman Lesnock


Kathy was born and reared in a home where country music and singing were as natural as breathing. From those childhood days in rural Pennsylvania, Kathy became a songwriter and vocalist. She has performed at Nashville’s Bluebird Café. She met Jerry through a mutual friend – Jamie Peck, an award-winning producer who owns a recording studio (that Crandall Creek uses) in Wheeling. Kathy is the band “mom,” making sure there is food for practices and shows. And she makes great pies.
