Craig Mecham has spent more than five decades playing and performing on a variety of keyboard and stringed instruments. Over the years he has played and sang on stages in England, Utah, Idaho, California, Arizona, Missouri and Washington State. He has performed for British Royalty, the Mayor of London, various elected officials, religious leaders and countless 4th graders.
Craig has written well over fifty songs and recently took 2nd place at the annual KSM Songwriter’s Contest. He was also a finalist at the prestigious Red Lodge Songwriter’s festival. His songwriting features solo acoustic guitar instrumentals as well as lighthearted and humorous tales of growing up along with serious slice-of-life ballads.
As an accomplished storyteller and humorist, Craig’s performances are liberally sprinkled with stories that accompany his songs, including hating broccoli as a child, being attacked by mosquitoes at scout camp, finding true love and saying goodbye as his mother languished in a care center. His ability to weave music and lyrics into a very personal experience will have you roaring with laughter one minute and quietly dabbing your eyes the next. A consummate entertainer and story-teller, Craig will have your audience completely captivated for the entire evening.
He and his wife Tamara have six amazing children and 18 completely angelic grandchildren.
