Layering traditional folk instruments over a rock band rhythm section, Shiloh Hill brings a smooth and infectious energy to the scene. The dance-worthy grooves mingle with hometown mandolin, turning the stage into a front porch, where front man Nick Hofstetter and his wife Mamie weave stories in harmony. Their winsome, family-band style ensures great fun and even better friends.

Shiloh Hill - "Frozen" live at Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival
"“Wildflower” – Shiloh Hill. Chipper full-band folk that starts with perky trumpet and brings in banjo like rays of sunshine coming out from behind a cloud. The chorus has an anthemic cast similar to The Decemberists, which is always welcome. This album looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun...."
"...breezy folk-pop ditties splashed with colorful accents of brass and glockenspiel. Live, the quartet leans on the charms of its collaborative songwriting and coed harmonies to sell mostly acoustic jangles that are earnest, if not always earworms."
