Instrument makers of the Ozarks: The Life & Work of Ed Stilley
Enjoy an afternoon with Still On the Hill, this unique concert of stories and songs focused on handmade instruments outside of what more people think of as a guitar, fiddle or banjo. These creations are adorned with marbles, bbs, paint and bones. Inside, there are metallic skeletons consisting of saw blades, door springs, chainsaw parts and even glass bottles. There will be 8 of Ed Stilley’s creations at the concert where attendees will be invited to hold and play the instruments after the performance. A book signing follows
