Flint Hill is a bluegrass band consisting of Chance Parish on Banjo, Adam Frazier on Bass, Larry Williams on Dobro, Chris Poole on Guitar and Mark Burgess on Mandolin.
Chance Parrish is 21 and lives in Randleman, NC. He started playing the banjo around 8 years ago and fell in love with bluegrass music. His influences have always been older musicians and bands, some of them being The Country Gentlemen, Seldom Scene and The Johnson Mountain Boys. Chance says, "If I had to pick an all time favorite musician it would be John Duffey. All time favorite banjo player, Eddie Adcock. I've always loved the older styles of bluegrass, never have been able to get into the music they make today."
Larry Williams is from Asheboro, NC. Proud to be the Dobro player for Flint Hill. Larry has been playing the dobro for about 10 years. His influences are Rob Ickes, Jerry Douglas and Josh Swift. Larry enjoys bluegrass music, family and church.
Mark Burgess is from the Grantville community near Asheboro NC. He now resides in Julian NC and has been playing the mandolin on and off for over 40 years. He has always enjoyed picking at festivals and on friends porches. Being a part of the Flint Hill Bluegrass Band has been a true blessing. He has 1 son and 3 grandchildren that he enjoys taking on camping trips. Camping at festivals is what he calls vacation time.
Adam Frazier starting playing bluegrass at 16. He's spent time playing the banjo and the guitar. Later he took up the mandolin for a bit. When he joined Flint Hill he began playing the bass and singing baritone. "I love playing bluegrass and enjoy meeting with the people who come out and listen to our music. "
I grew up in Thomasville, NC. As a child, I was heavily influenced by classic country and the strong harmonies of southern gospel. I started playing the banjo when I was 11 and fell in love with Bluegrass music. Eventually, I started playing the guitar and singing. I've been singing with Flint Hill for 3 years. Playing music has become not only a hobby, but a passion and a way of life for me. I'm proud to be playing with such a talented group of musicians.
