‘AETN Presents’ to feature folk artists Still on the Hill Friday

 

“AETN Presents: On the Front Row With Still on the Hill” will premiere Friday, Nov. 4, at 6:30 p.m. on the Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN).

“AETN Presents: On the Front Row” is part of AETN Arts Fridays, featuring world class arts and culture programming and locally produced series.

Hailing from the Ozarks, Still on the Hill features a unique brand of Arkansan “folkgrass.” The accomplished multi-instrumental and 2010 Governor’s Arts Award-winning duo of Kelly Mullhollan and Donna Stjerna has produced seven albums since 2001. The group’s repertoire is primarily their own original compositions interspersed with new arrangements of traditional songs.

Still on the Hill performs 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.
