2014 Band Bios
Hound Dog Hill
Hound Dog Hill is a six piece neo-traditional string band from the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. Since 2003, Hound Dog Hill has been making music the traditional way, using all acoustic instruments and drawing their influence from the Shenandoah Valley's rich musical heritage. In the years they have been playing together, Hound Dog Hill has evolved into a high-energy Bluegrass and Old Time string band. In the summer of 2007, Hound Dog Hill won several awards including First Place for Best Original Song at the Appalachian String Band Festival at Clifftop, West Virginia, as well as Second Place Neo-Traditional Band. In the summer of 2008 the band was awarded First Place Old Time Band at the 15th Annual Glen Maury Fiddlers’ Convention at Buena Vista, Virginia. To find out more about Hound Dog Hill.
Rock 'n' roll music has always been about having fun, first and foremost, and Staunton's own Findells have never shied away from that. The Fins have been playing to packed houses in Virginia for years, in fact, they've had so much fun for so long that the band has celebrated over 30 years of making music together. The energy is infectious, the lyrics intelligent and thoughtful, and the music is passionately delivered. These guys (and two girls) know rock 'n' roll and they offer it honestly, defying rock star pretensions and absolute categorization. This music crosses the age barriers- immediately engaging to young listeners and poignant to discerning ears.
