REDWOOD HILL is a group of friends who have banded together to pay tribute to Bluegrass music’s legendary Country Gentlemen, a group highly acclaimed as one of the most important progressive Bluegrass bands for their unique blend of folk and Bluegrass music.

Hailing from Neversink, New York, Keith Edwards (guitar) has an extensive background in Bluegrass music, playing in several groups including The Feinberg Brothers , Straight Drive, and currently as the bass player for Zink & Co. As a big fan of Charlie Waller, lead singer/guitarist for the Country Gentlemen, Keith plays guitar with Redwood Hill.

Called “simply the best Bluegrass bass fiddle player in New England” by the Hudson Valley Bluegrass Association, Lillian Fraker from Lanesboro, Massachusetts is well known in New England Bluegrass circles. Lillian has played in several bands including The Bear Bridge Band, The Old Time Bluegrass Singers, Girl Howdy and Tex’s Troubadours.

Dave “Tex” Orlomoski (mandolin) is currently making his home in Barkhamsted, CT. A multi instrumentalist in his own right he is currently a member of the Seth Sawyer Band. He is the founder of Tex’s Troubadours, and one half of the Bear Minimum duo . Previous bands include The Bear Bridge Band , Shady Creek & Grass Routes.

Growing up in western Massachusetts and now residing in Belmont, New Hampshire, multi-instrumentalist Dave Shaw (banjo) has a lifetime of experience in country and Bluegrass music. A founding member of the Bear Bridge Band, Dave currently plays in The Seth Sawyer Band, NewFound Grass, and teams up with his longtime singing partner & friend Dave “Tex” Orlomoski in Bear Minimum.

Stephan Wilkinson, who is helping with the promotion of our concerts, has a question for the membership.  Responses should go directly to Stephan, at or 845 534-7601 if you prefer to talk rather than type.

Question:  Do any HVBA members have suggestions as to where we can publicize our upcoming concerts?  

Specific Facebook pages, music-calendar sites or unusual publications (we already send press releases to the obvious ones such as the Poughkeepsie Journal).  We’re not attempting to attract an audience big enough that we’ll need to kick the Hudson Valley Renegades out of Dutchess Stadium, but it would be nice to have full houses for the musicians who go to such effort to play for our pleasure.  

Obviously most of you get your HVBA concert information from our website and the regular mailings, but I’m hoping that some of you also know where to look for music elsewhere.  Any ideas will be welcomed!  (Do be aware, though, that some publications, such as Chronogram, have three-month-plus lead times that make it impossible for us to tell them about a concert a month in the future.)
