Still on the Hill to perform free concert at AETN
Posted 01 Nov 2010
Still on the Hill will perform a free concert at the Arkansas Educational Television Network studios Wednesday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. for an upcoming episode of AETN Presents: On the Front Row.
The public is invited to this free performance, which will be taped for broadcast at a later date. Anyone interested in being part of the audience is asked to R.S.V.P. at www.aetn.org/rsvp and arrive at the studio by 6:15 p.m. on Nov. 10. AETN is located at 350 South Donaghey in Conway.
Hailing from the Ozarks, Still on the Hill features a unique brand of Arkansan folkgrass. The accomplished multi-instrumental and 2010 Governors Arts Award-winning duo of Kelly Mullhollan and Donna Stjerna has produced seven albums since 2001. The groups repertoire is primarily their own original compositions interspersed with new arrangements of traditional songs.
The duo will be performing songs from their newest CD, Ozark: A Celebration in Song. The project was born out of their travels in the Ozarks and from collecting song ideas from their audiences during their performances. Mullhollan and Stjerna write about the amazing folks and places they know and love with the belief that the unsung heroes of the Ozarks best reflect what makes the hills distinctive. They hope that by telling their stories in song, they will be nurturing an ongoing tradition.
AETN Presents features a variety of arts and cultural subjects. Previously included in the series have been the Arkansas Acoustic Festival; performances by the Cate Brothers, Trout Fishing in America, Dale Hawkins, Wayland Holyfield and Friends, Shannon Boshears Band and Epiphany; and On the Same Page with authors Buzz Bissinger, Billy Collins, John T. Edge and Kenneth L. Smith.
