About the Band

Formed in early 2016 and hailing from the woods of central Vermont, Still Hill plays a unique blend of progressive bluegrass dipped in folk, Americana, and old time roots music. Members include Rob Lees (guitar and vocals), Niles Franc (bass, banjo, harmonica, and vocals), Jen Freise (fiddle and vocals), and Cody Williams (mandolin and vocals). Still Hill’s original songwriting, instrumental improvisation, and 3-part harmonies will make you hoot, holler, dance and leave you wanting more each and every time.

We generally run one of two setups using whichever will sound best in the venue. Our preferred setup is to play together around two condenser mics while running the bass into the console directly via pre-amp. In cases when this setup may not produce ideal sound (excessive wind, small "boomy" rooms, background noise etc) we run all instruments in via pickups/pre-amps and each use our own vocal mics. For very small rooms or spaces with excellent acoustics, we absolutely love playing with no amplification at all.

See our stage plots for more detail and let us know if we can help in any way.
