High On A Hillside Music Festival

June 25, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 10:00 pm

JOHNSON CITY, TN – The first annual High On A Hillside will take place June 25th, 2022 at TVA Credit Union Ballpark in
Johnson City, TN. The event seeks to embrace and celebrate the musical heritage of the region while showcasing
modern, progressive music, and providing a fun, family friendly opportunity to showcase local food vendors, and
craftsmen and women.

The 2022 High On A Hillside will feature three musical acts playing six full sets totaling nearly 8 hours of live music.
Headliners will include The Brothers Comatose and Kitchen Dwellers, with special guests Urban Soil. The Brothers
Comatose forge their own path with raucous West Coast renderings of traditional bluegrass, country and rock ‘n’ roll
music. The five-piece string band is anything but a traditional acoustic outfit with their fierce musicianship and rowdy,
rock concert-like shows. The Brothers Comatose is comprised of brothers Ben Morrison (guitar, vocals) and Alex Morrison
(banjo, vocals), Steve Height (bass, vocals), Philip Brezina (violin), and Greg Fleischut (mandolin). When they’re not
headlining The Fillmore for a sold-out show or appearing at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, the band is out on the road
performing across America, Canada, Australia, and hosting their very own music festival, Comatopia, in the Sierra

Kitchen Dwellers twist bluegrass, folk, and rock through a kaleidoscope of homegrown stories, rich mythology, American
west wanderlust, and psychedelic hues. The Montana quartet—Shawn Swain [Mandolin], Torrin Daniels [banjo], Joe Funk
[upright bass], and Max Davies [acoustic guitar]—have captivated audiences at hallowed venues such as Red Rocks
Amphitheatre and performed alongside everyone from Railroad Earth and Twiddle to The Infamous String Dusters in
addition to playing festivals such as Northwest String Summit, WinterWonderGrass, and more.

Hailing from North Carolina, Urban Soil weaves Americana, rock and soul into their explosive live shows and polished
recordings. Their studio albums reflect the uncompromising energy that Urban Soil consistently delivers live, and are a
stimulating representation of the band’s skillful-yet–visceral sound. Urban Soil has the unique ability of capturing the
energy of their live shows and translating it to their studio recordings, resulting in an electrifying experience with every

According to Courtney Andrews, one of the festival’s directors, “High On A Hillside is a celebration of the musical heritage
of this region. Where it all started and where it is going. We plan to bring the best up and coming artists in the
progressive bluegrass, folk, rock and country sphere, right here to Johnson City. As the event grows, attendees will enjoy
even larger acts. This city was integral in the creation of bluegrass and country music. We deserve a marquee music
event celebrating that contribution, and High On A Hillside aims to be that event”.

The event is family friendly and will feature local craft vendors, amazing food trucks, craft beer and seltzer from
Tennessee Hills Brewstillery, events and activities for everyone. Event staff have partnered with Highlands Axe Company
as well as Tri Cities Social Sports who will set up free play areas for giant jenga, cornhole, and more. They will also be
hosting a free cornhole tournament where teams can win great prizes. A family flag football game will also take place.
Details and sign up information will be posted on the event website soon.
