Red Light Café welcomes back Atlanta's own Cedar Hill for some high energy bluegrass music! Cedar Hill was the first band to play for Red Light Café's Bluegrass night back in the day – you'll love this group with their tight harmonies and really high energy show!
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, golden oldies 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.
