Concert: Moonshine Holler

Date: 01/18/2020
Time: 5:00 pm-6:00 pm

Moonshine Holler, the husband and wife duet of Paula Bradley and Bill Dillof, captures the essence of American roots music: hillbilly blues, ballads and breakdowns, Carter family classics and jug band stompers, with knock-your-socks-off flatfoot dancing to boot. Known for their musical prowess on more instruments than they can juggle (banjo, fiddle, guitar, Hawaiian guitar, harmonica, ukulele, kazoo), Paula and Bill are two performers steeped in old time traditional music who have performed and taught across the country and abroad.

Paula has toured the US and Germany on banjo with old-time darlings “Uncle Earl” and teamed up with fiddle powerhouses Bruce Molsky and Brittany Haas (Crooked Still) for a tour of Sweden. Along with Bruce, she was also a member of the trio “Jawbone” featuring banjo innovator Tony Trischka. She has also recorded and performed with old time trios The Rhythm Rats (with Kenny Jackson and Whitt Mead) and The Haywire Gang (with Mac Benford and John Hoffmann). Bill is a founding member of the legendary Canebrake Rattlers, a NYC-based string band known for their authentic “78 rpm” sound. He has an acclaimed old-time CD “Been on the Job Too Long” recorded with Dave Rice and Joe LaRose as “The Cuyahogians”.
