Cedar Hill is an Atlanta band. Why Atlanta? Why not New York, L.A., or Nashville? Here's why: They are without question the SEVENTH BEST bluegrass band in the country. However, it is a little known fact that a heinous conspiracy dictates that there can only be SIX full-time, national-touring bluegrass bands in America. Undaunted by this repression, Cedar Hill has squandered (devoted) their talents building a dedicated following (OK, so the following consists of one guy named Bob Perl) and has rightfully earned a reputation as Atlanta's MOST ENTERTAINING bluegrass band.
Bluegrass Unlimited magazine called Cedar Hill "the fun bunch of the genre" while not mentioning the specific amount of any bribes they may have received. Luckily for the shameless reviewer, none of Cedar Hill's members knew what a "genre" was and bloodshed was averted.
Performing since 1976, Cedar Hill has the remarkable track record of NEVER being rained on at a outdoor, paying gig. They did endure a heavy snowfall once, but to the promoter's delight, they completed the show, obviously driven by the profit motive and partial paralysis due to the cold. For this reason, Cedar Hill is often booked strictly as a good luck weather charm, especially during the summer thunderstorm season. (At no extra charge!)
Cedar Hill has performed their brand of bluegrass entertainment at many venues, clubs, conventions, concerts, festivals, private parties, and special events around the southeast. Cedar Hill was not nominated for a Grammy in 1995. They were voted "Favorite Entertainers" for five consecutive years at the McIntosh Amphitheater in Peachtree City, Georgia. They have the plastic trophies to prove it. Rumors of vote-buying and coercion were never proven and were most likely planted by jealous rivals.
The group has been called upon to perform at many of Atlanta's premier events including the Coca-Cola Centennial, the 1996 Olympics (Underground Atlanta), and Peach Bowl Presidential Balls. Cedar Hill has opened for many national acts (such as Doc Watson, Leon Russell, Phish) at local concert venues such as Lakewood Amphitheater and the Variety Playhouse.
Born out of the Atlanta based band, Wichita, 3 Way Street strives to just make great music. All members are full time career musicians. While 3 Way Street is technically a cover band, the main focus is to create, or help its audience relive, memories by playing some of the best music of all time.
3 Way Street is:
Steve Ward — guitar and vocals
Felton Dunn — bass and vocals
David Ellis — dobro, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, guitar and vocals.
When Anne Buckle graduated from Harvard University in 2012, very few people expected her to move to Nashville to pursue a career as an artist and songwriter. But as the great, great niece of A.P. Carter and cousin of June Carter Cash, she always felt called to write and sing country music, so she made the thousand-mile journey from Boston to Music City to follow in her family's footsteps.
Originally from Fayetteville, Georgia, Anne is a singer, songwriter, and fiddle player with deep musical roots. Growing up, she spent her summers in the hills of southwestern Virginia, playing music with the late June and Johnny Cash and other Carter Family relatives. Her songs are profoundly influenced by her Appalachian musical heritage.
For the past 2 years, Anne has called Nashville home, working a day-job for the Governor of Tennessee while spending nights and weekends writing and playing gigs in town and out. Around Nashville, she regularly performs at venues like the Bluebird Café, Belcourt Taps, Douglas Corner, and the Basement, to name a few. In July 2014, she released her debut, self-titled EP featuring 8 originals all written or co-written by Anne and produced by Bobby Holland and Tim Grogan.
