Uncorked with Bob Keel
Keel and Hill are a duo that will make you smile. Part folk and part contemporary bluegrass, these two weave together a fun and organic sound that will reach inside and lift the soul. Bob Keel, West Virginia Eastern Panhandle native, has been writing original folk music for almost 20 years and has released four full length albums and three EPs. His sound draws comparison to Jack Johnson, Bob Dylan, and the Avett Brothers. Eldred Hill, Washington DC Metro native, comes to the duo having cut his teeth writing and playing mandolin with his own bluegrass band, Patent Pending, for forty years, as of 2017. Hill’s contemporary style pays homage to the bluegrass royalty like Bill Monroe, and yet, one can still hear the influence of Hill’s favorite mandolin players like Doyle Lawson and Sam Bush. When Keel and Hill take the stage the audience will hear songs that they know by heart and songs that they feel like they should know by heart. Which ever the case may be, the listener leaves the show feeling happier and lighter than when they walked in.

Paulo Franco is a Richmond, Virginia based singer/ songwriter. In terms of recording, it may seem that Franco has come to the game later in life than some, but his musical journey has been a lifelong story. Born to Colombian immigrants and raised in Washington D.C., Paulo embraces his heritage as a first generation American and his songs and style reflect that. As a child, his father turned him on to the country music of the United States via the Johnny Cash Variety show and on his own he discovered a love for rock n roll through the Stones and the Beatles. At the age of nine, he picked up a classical guitar and a musician was born. After years of playing in various cover bands and honing his chops, Franco began writing his own material in earnest in 2010.
Paulo’s songs are steeped in storytelling, often drawing from his own life and those around him. The sound is a seamless blend of the myriad of influences that have shaped both his everyday life and his musical tastes. Listeners will find glimpses of Robert Earl Keen’s storytelling, John Prine’s wit, The Stones’ rock n roll heart, and the fluidity of The Grateful Dead often times infused with the rhythms of traditional Latin and Colombian music. He has recently included original Spanish songs into his songwriting, bringing a depth and a love of two cultures seldom seen during the same show or album. Paulo switches his voice from country twang, to rock anthem, to Spanish troubadour. His vocals are so authentically Spanish that it’s easy to forget you just heard him effortlessly sing a country tune in English.
