CEDAR HILL BLUEGRASS BAND

Meet The Band

Cedar Hill is an Award-winning bluegrass group from Atlanta, Georgia, with a high energy show, that features variety, comedy and entertainment, tight harmony, unique vocal arrangements, and masterful picking on the 5-string banjo, mandolin, acoustic guitar and electric bass.

Voted Favorite Bluegrass Act by Country Atlanta in 2006, Cedar Hill has a diverse repertoire that includes traditional and contemporary bluegrass, oldie goldies from the 40’s through the 80’s, some classic rock n roll, gospel, country, folk, pop, and jazz.Entertaining audiences of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures is a specialty of Cedar Hill’s. In the national publication Bluegrass Unlimited, one music reviewer referred to Cedar Hill as the fun bunch of the genre. The multi-talented group loves to make audiences laugh with their wit, off-beat humor, and their great collection of novelty songs, such as Mama Don’t Allow, My Own Grandpa, and You Done Stomped on My Heart.

Established in 1976, Cedar Hill Bluegrass Band has performed throughout the southeast for corporate events and at festivals, clubs, resorts, conventions, concert halls, private parties, weddings, fundraisers and other special events. The band has performed for President Jimmy Carter and the Carter Center staff on several occasions. Cedar Hill has also been featured on several local and national radio and television programs including the Public Broadcasting System State of the Arts. Cedar Hill has often been called upon, in the Atlanta area, to open up for national artists including music legends Doc Watson, Phish, Leon Russell, Tony Rice, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, and Earl Scruggs.
