Hello there Americana music lovers!
Hound Dog Hill is a six piece neo-traditional string band from the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. Catch one of our shows for a night you'll not soon forget!
Founder - Cutch Tuttle

Since 2003, Hound Dog Hill has been making music the traditional way, using all acoustic instruments and drawing their influence from the Shenandoah Valley's rich musical heritage. In the years they have been playing together, Hound Dog Hill has evolved into a high-energy Bluegrass and Old Time string band.


In the summer of 2007, Hound Dog Hill won several awards including First Place for Best Original Song at the Appalachian String Band Festival at Clifftop, West Virginia, as well as Second Place Neo-Traditional Band. In the summer of 2008 the band was awarded First Place Old Time Band at the 15th Annual Glen Maury Fiddlers’ Convention at Buena Vista, Virginia.

Hound Dog Hill has been featured on several radio and TV stations across the Shenandoah Valley including WHSV TV 3, WVLS Appalachian Radio, WXJM 88.1, and WTJU 91.1. Hound Dog Hill has played county fairs, bar rooms, BBQ's, festivals, wedding receptions, company parties, and many kinds of benefits and gatherings. They never fail to deliver a great show. Catch this band at one of their local venues, or better yet, book them for your next event!
