Super-group Hills to Hollers (Barbara Higbie, Vicki Randle, Laurie Lewis) explores the rich history and intertwined roots of the African-American and white musical traditions of the American south. Vicki Randle, of Mavis Staples, “Tonight Show” and Skip the Needle fame joins Laurie Lewis, two-time bluegrass female vocalist of the year and Barbara Higbie, a Grammy-nominated, Bammy and Glama award winning multi-instrumentalist/singer. With soaring harmonies, fierce percussion and blazing double fiddles, Hills to Hollers celebrates the past and the future of our profound musical heritage. 2022 marks Hills to Holler’s ten year anniversary.

For 2022, the Festival’s main stage is again temporarily transplanted from our signature Tent Concert Hall in Mendocino Headlands State Park to the beautiful, iconic and historic 1938 Cotton Auditorium in nearby Fort Bragg. We’re pleased to also welcome the return of more intimate concerts in Preston Hall, our smaller Mendocino venue. While we’d hoped to be back in the Tent Concert Hall this year, the combination of pandemic-related disruptions in the availability of vital resources (such as labor) and lingering uncertainty about public health conditions this summer would have made that an unacceptably risky proposition. Meanwhile, work is under way toward our 2023 return to our home since 1985, the Tent Concert Hall on the Mendocino Headlands.
