Still on the Hill is a national and international touring group from Northwestern Arkansas that has been described as “Ambassadors of the Ozarks” for the work they do to preserve a rich culture that is quickly disappearing.
Kelly & Donna of Still on the Hill
are award winning ‘story telling-song writers’. Different than most singer-songwriters, this dynamic duo embellishes their songs with a host of unique instruments from the hills they call home. Many of these were hand-made by old-timers and have amazing stories that go with them. Their 'low tech' Power Point has become a trademark of their shows. Every song has a photo quilt to go with it. "A picture is worth a 1,000 words".
HSV’s Audubon group
is excited to sponsor this duo not only because of their educational and entertaining program but also because Kelly and Donna are avid birders and naturalists. Many of the songs they write have important ecological messages embedded in them. They have been teaching Ornithology at Halberg Ecology Camp for over 17 years for 11 and 12 year olds.
The show they are bringing to HSV will be a collection of songs from several of their CD’s about the Ozarks as well as some ‘bird songs’ thrown in for good measure.
