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.

Mollie O’Brien and her husband, guitarist Rich Moore, have for nearly 30 years quietly made it their mission to ﬁnd, mine and reinvent other artists’ songs.
