Making a welcome return!
Making a welcome return to Wales, folowing successful perfromances at the Gower Bluegrass Festival in 2010 & 2012, Cedar Hill perform at one of Swansea’s most prestigious venues.
Formed by its patriarch and mandolin player Frank Ray some 40 years ago, Cedar Hill is a traditional Bluegrass band made up of five accomplished musicians and singers who have stayed true to their Ozark roots. In 2008, Frank was honoured by being inducted in to America’s Old Time Country Music Hall Of Fame in Anita, Iowa.
You will be hard pressed to find a better traditional bluegrass band anywhere. Now settled into their own in the mainstream of the National bluegrass scene, Cedar Hill has been pleasing audiences everywhere with their original, emotional, exciting brand of traditional Bluegrass.
One listen to Cedar Hill and there can be no doubt that traditional Bluegrass music not only exists, but thrives in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri and Arkansas. Honest, emotive original songs, soulful, heartfelt vocals and great picking with drive is what Cedar Hill is all about.

Erynn Marshall & Carl Jones are old-time musicians and inspired tunesmiths. They are married – in life and music.
When they play, their instruments and voices blend like two forks of the same river.
Southern song-duets and soaring fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo tunes comprise their diverse concert sets. They play with ease, spontaneity and vitality. Together Carl & Erynn’s expressive, musical meanderings can transport the soul.
“You can hear love, intention, generosity, humour and soul in the music of Erynn Marshall and Carl Jones. They welcome us in and awaken a deep sense and feeling for traditional music that is carved right into our bones.” - Dirk Powell (2015)
“Smokey and sweet – like the finest aged whiskey – that’s what Carl and Erynn’s singing and playing brings to mind.
A lovely touch in their playing and a beautiful melding of melancholy and cheerfulness which is exactly what I love to hear.” - John Doyle (2015)
