Windy Hill - Bluegrass
Windy Hill is keeper of the bluegrass flame on the West Coast. Starting as a group of high school friends from Silicon Valley, Windy Hill has transformed over the last five years into a top-notch, authentic bluegrass band. As the band has dug deeper into the culture and history of bluegrass music than many of their peers, they have maintained one foot in the modern sensibility, writing their own songs, with their own point of view, and in their own voices. Three-part harmony, lonesome duets, Appalachian fiddle, banjo breakdowns, gospel quartets, honky-tonk sorrow, blues mandolin, archival knowledge, and original material all combine to create their vision for bluegrass music and it’s future. They’ve won numerous awards, toured all over the Western States, and released two albums, “Let’s Go To The Fair” and “The Lonesome Garbage Man,” with their third, “Bluegrass Sounds from California,” to be released in 2017.
