The Ozark Folkgrass Duo
Still On The Hill
Is scheduled to perform at:
Venue: Kelley's house!
Location: Del Mar, CA
Date: Thurs., Nov. 13 Time: 7:30 pm
At the very heart of the "folkgrass" phenomenon is a duo known as Still on
the Hill (Kelly Mulhollan and Donna Henschell). This exciting duo will be
making a stop in the San Diego/Del Mar area for a show that you won't want to
miss! They have been making waves all over the U.S., Canada and Europe with
their hard to classify style that falls somewhere between folk and bluegrass.
Many writers have tried to describe Still on the Hill but no one has
captured their essence more eloquently than Julie Koehler-review editor for
"These musicians have grafted the wild climbing vines of bluegrass, folk,
classical and mountain music onto the hardiest of Ozark rootstock. The
result is a yet-to-be-named hybrid music that compels people to stop and
listen, to pause in their hectic lives and pay attention to something
they've never heard before. It's magic, and there's simply not enough magic
in the world today.
Visually, Still on the Hill is full of color and motion: they command
their instruments with power and grace, producing a sound that is both
fresh and ancient at the same time. Lyrically, their original material is
packed with new ideas, social awareness and a level of intellect and
consciousness that's seldom found in contemporary tunes.
Still on the Hill are consummate professionals, whether they're
performing for an audience of one or for thousands. Their high-energy seems
to emerge from somewhere deep inside their souls. They play music for only
one reason: it's a spark, or maybe a raging bonfire, inside each of them
that has to come out. It's something that's shared just as easily with a
large festival audience as it would be with a quiet Ozark Forest." -

Still on the Hill has proved itself a favorite at many prestigious
festivals and venues here and abroad, including the Kerrville Folk Festival,
the Philadelphia Folk Festival and countless others. Their own region, the
Ozarks, has voted them "Best Folk Band" for 4 years running and they are now
members of the Hall of Fame. The group has produced 5 widely acclaimed CD's
and recently signed with Swiss record label Brambus Records for European
distribution of their latest Chaos & Calm CD.
