Stillwater Bluegrass hails from the hills and hollers of the Tennessee River Valley, performing up-tempo traditional bluegrass and bluegrass gospel songs in the styles of Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs, the Louvin Brothers, Jim and Jesse, the Country Gentlemen, the Dillards and Doc Watson, as well as time-honored, toe-tappin’, up-tempo fiddle, mandolin and banjo instrumental tunes.
Stillwater Bluegrass instrumentation features banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, Dobro and double bass; most members play multiple instruments. The three vocalists rotate singing leads and swap “high and lonesome” harmonies. In additional to having a different lead singer every song, Stillwater Bluegrass varies the dynamics, feel and the chord structures of their repertoire. A favorite comment, heard frequently, is: “We like listening to ya’ll, ‘cause your music doesn’t all sound the same!” Compliments don’t get much better than that.
This collection of musicians, aged 23 to 66, have played and/or sung most of their lives and entertains at concerts, corporate functions, festivals, farmers’ markets, fundraisers, listening rooms, parties, picnics, restaurants, BBQs and hat drops around the Valley, mainly within a 90-mile radius of Huntsville, AL.
Stillwater Bluegrass was honored as a featured act at Fayetteville’s Host of Christmas Past celebration for the last five years and at the Chamber’s Old Stone Bridge Park concerts and Huntsville’s Ditto Landing’s concerts. Stillwater performed at Von Braun Center’s 40th Year Celebration in March, Huntsville Arts Council’s 33rd Annual Arts Panoply in April and the Huntsville Arts Council’s Big Spring Concert in July.
