Seemingly oblivious to the limitations of what two musicians can create, Still on the Hill has set new boundaries of originality. This duo uses traditional instruments from their home in the Ozarks (mandolin, banjo, fiddle, harmonica, and guitar) as well as other exotic instruments (Moon guitar from Japan, African mbira, tenor ukulele) to create a kaleidoscope of musical color and texture.
Donna Stjerna began playing fiddle with her dad at age 12, and began touring the country with him in her early teens. Kelly Mulhollan is a veteran of many bands playing everything from rock to bluegrass to jazz. When they met in a recording studio, the heart of Still on the Hill was born.
Like musical white lightning, Still on the Hill will offer you shots of their unique “folkgrass” that just leave you wanting more! Shows begin at 8:00 pm, and tickets are $15 general admission, $12 members, $8 students. For more information call 252-633-6444 or visit Down East FolkArts Society’s website.
