Rolling Hills Radio, a creation of producer/host Ken Hardley, is an on-going series featuring live musical performances from national and internationally recognized artists exploring, celebrating, and performing grassroots Americana music. It is recorded in front of a live audience, combining the ambience of a radio show from the middle of the last century with the intimate appeal of a small club setting.

HOSTED BY TODD BURGE…

Best known among the key producers to emerge from the American underground’s jangle pop movement of the early ’80s, Don Dixon also enjoyed a cult following as a solo performer. A native of North Carolina, he dwelled in relative obscurity for well over a decade as a member of the little-known Arrogance before attracting his first significant notice around 1983 after co-producing with Mitch Easter R.E.M.’s landmark debut LP, Murmur.

Hailing from the mountain towns of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Maryland, the Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers draw freely from old-time, bluegrass, jamgrass, rockabilly, and swing music to create their own brand of high energy Appalachian Bluegrass. Their goal is simple: write good songs, honor the music, have fun, and take it to the road.

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by Tri-County Arts Council.
