Cedar Hill Bluegrass Band

    Biography
    Cedar Hill Bluegrass

    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 ’40s through the ’80s, 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. Members of Cedar Hill are Jim Duck Adkins on banjo and vocals, Bob MacIsaac on guitar and vocals, David Ellis on mandolin, fiddle, dobro and vocals, and Jerry Zee on vocals & electric bass. Compact Discography: Don’t Let the Stars Get in Your Eyeballs, Double Album, and 25 Years of Cedar Hill.
