Still on the Hill is pure originality. The duo not only uses traditional instruments – mandolin, banjo, fiddle, guitar, harmonica and scrub board – but also other exotic offerings such a Moon guitar from Japan, African Mbira and Tenor Ukulele. They are a favorite at many prestigious festivals and venues, including the Kerrville Folk Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival, The Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival in Winfield, Kansas, and many others. From Fayetteville, they have produced seven widely acclaimed CD’s, and three years ago signed with Swiss record label Brambus Records for the European release of the CD “Chaos & Calm.”
A trio, also from Fayetteville, 3 Penny Acre’s name comes from the cost of the Louisiana Purchase, a fitting name for a band whose members were all raised inside its borders. It’s a musical collaboration that makes for an Ozark-inspired sound that is distinct and universally appealing.
Harrison has plenty of great places to stay and eat. Within walking distance of the theater, the Hotel Seville has lodging and ticket packages for the weekend. The hotel’s restaurant, John Paul’s, is serving up a special Valentine’s meal too.
