Hill should be a hit at Long Days festival

Montreal’s guitar hero Steve Hill is set to head out for a one-man band Canadian tour this summer and will make a stop in Swift Current on June 19 as part of the Long Days Night Festival.

The tour is in support of his acclaimed multiple award-winning release Solo Recordings Volume 2. When it comes to one-man bands, guitarist and singer extraordinaire Hill has no limits.

Throughout his lengthy and intense shows, Hill performs standing up while singing and playing guitar, with his feet playing bass drum, snare drum, hi-hats and, with a drum stick fused to the head of his trusty guitar, any other percussion within reach.
