August “Lunch on the Lawn”

Wind up the summer on a positive note by enjoying the August “Lunch on the Lawn.“ On Friday August 1st stop by the Greenville Public Library to relax and nourish yourself under the shade trees while you groove to the music. From 11:30 to 1:00 Romer’s Catering will serve lunch for $7 - or bring your own or just stop by for fun. The menu includes 1/4 BBQ chicken, fresh fruit cup, potato salad, and bottled water.

As always, $1.00 of every lunch sold will be donated to Main Street Greenville, with whom the Library partners for these events. In case of extreme heat or rain, the event will be moved to EUM’s Youth center at 111 Devor Street.

Entertainment will be provided by the popular Higgins-Madewell. Erin Higgins Cress and Jeff Madewell first met in 2006 when their former bands were winding down and they were each looking for a change. Both already had a good following and their first show together in December of that year went over very well. For a taste of their sound go to

Erin had been playing guitar since an early age and singing in high school while Jeff was traveling and playing in bands. Once on a visit home he was in a local restaurant where people told him about Erin. He called her to do a couple shows acoustically - kind of on the side for extra income. He’d been used to big venues and sounds systems. The rest is history!

From that first show came bookings 3-4 months in advance. They found they had the same work ethic and mutual respect. Today they play within about a 50 mile radius from their homes in West Milton though they occasionally go out of state. They have two CDs so far - Spiderbite and Sweet Medicine. Some of their songs are getting air time on WNKU, Northern Kentucky University’s radio station.

Erin’s been going to college the last few years and is married with two children. Jeff has a small recording studio and does productions like jingles, as well as teaches guitar. They enjoy songwriting and each present ideas they expand on.

They’d like to expand their listening area and admit ”Our fans jump started everything!”
