CANE HILL PROJECT

Welcome to Cane Hill

The town of Cane Hill played an important role in the early settlement days of Northwest Arkansas. The Civil War, the Trail of Tears, the rise of the apple industry, and other events left a rich history and countless stories to be told. We’ve attempted to capture some of these stories in song for this collection, Cane Hill.

The town had all but disappeared by the mid twentieth century but today there is an exciting revival afoot. We were thrilled and honored when the Historic Cane Hill board members asked us to create a CD project of story-songs that celebrate Cane Hill’s unique history. We hope this music inspires you to come visit the Cane Hill Museum and experience the rich history that surrounds the town for yourself!

THE STORY-SONGS


Kelly and Donna Mulhollan are Still on the Hill, a folk duo who in recent times have been turning their talents toward reviving the history of their beloved Arkansas Ozarks. Their latest project is titled after the historic town of Cane Hill, Arkansas. Cane Hill could have been any small town with its own history, people and events and when tied together the songs tell a story that deserves to be remembered.


Still on the Hill’s Cane Hill is not to be passed up. Anyone interested in true honest to goodness folk songs should make a permanent location for this recording in their collection. It should be part of the curriculum for vocal music classes and porch pickers everywhere. If you’re a folk singer, folk music lover, a history buff or maybe you or your ancestors have a connection to one of the small communities in the Ozarks or maybe the Appalachians, this music will pull at your heart strings – Enjoy the journey back in time, courtesy of Still on the Hill.
