Papa John Creach

John Henry Creach (28 May 1917 - 22 February 1994), better known as Papa John Creach, was an American blues violinist who also played classical, jazz, be-bop, R&B, pop and acid rock. At the beginning of his career he appeared as a journeyman musician with greats such as Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Stuff Smith, Charlie Christian, Big Joe Turner, T-Bone Walker, Nat King Cole and Roy Milton.

After his rediscovery by drummer Joey Covington in 1967, he played with various bands (including Zulu and Midnight Sun), Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna, Jefferson Starship, Jefferson Starship - The Next Generation, the San Francisco All-Stars (1979-1984), The Dinosaurs (1982-1989) and Steve Taylor.

Creach has recorded a number of solo albums and has appeared in several concerts with the Grateful Dead and Charlie Daniels Band. He was a regular guest at the early annual Volunteer Jams organized by Charlie Daniels, which introduced him to a new audience that was receptive to violinists.
