Since his grandfather, uncle’s and mother played music, Jim started off at an early age with the guitar and then banjo. Jim was one of the original members of Cedar Hill in the early 70's when they recorded their first album. He later worked for the Calton Family Band for one season in Branson, Missouri and then returned to Cedar Hill. After taking an extended leave from the music business, Jim started performing again and built Palm Recording Studio in Rogers, Arkansas, where he uses his engineering skills to provide a variety of audio and video recording services to artists and musicians. J.D. Crowe, Carl Jackson and Ben Eldridge were the banjo picker’s that had the most impact on Jim’s banjo style.
Pete developed a love of the fiddle at three years old listening to his father's Bob Wills records. He discovered that his barber could play a fiddle and would get his hair cut as often as his dad would take him so he could get a few more pointers. Pete started playing with Blue Mountain Bluegrass at 13 and played many years with the Mcgaritys until he jumped into country music and headed for Nashville. After many years on the road, Pete came back to Arkansas and ran across an old friend from junior high, Patti LaFleur. She persuaded him to come back to bluegrass and play fiddle in a band that she was putting together. Pete collects comic books and hot sauce.
Patti started classical piano training at 4 years old. Annual trips to the Ozark Folk Festival exposed her to bluegrass and she wished for a banjo for her ninth birthday. Patti started playing banjo with the Dickerson Family at eleven and bought a bass a couple of years later to play with another band and has been picking and grinning ever since. She is very proud of her two amazing children, attempts to keep Pete Brown humble and lives in Benton, AR
Dan was born and raised in a small farming community in southeast Missouri. He grew up listening to his mom play guitar and sing classic country music and knew he wanted to do the same thing. He started singing when was 3 years old and finally found the patience to sit down and learn to play the guitar when he was 16. When he was 16, Dan also listened to his first bluegrass album and fell in love with the sound. After high school, Dan spent some time in Nashville pursuing music but then decided to go to college and took some time off from music. He started going to bluegrass festivals and sitting in on bluegrass jams about 6 years ago. He joined the Cedar Hill Bluegrass band in 2015 and is the newest member of the group.
