It's Folkish Fall, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, Autumn is on its way for us in the northern hemisphere, and Come by the Hills is on its way too! Join me tonight at 8:00 PM Eastern for three hours of great Folk and Celtic music, some with a hint of Autumn and some that's just plain awesome in any season. There's also another personal tribute that I'll be paying to a very dear friend and spiritual role-model who died peacefully on Wednesday after a long and fruitful life.

This Week on Come by the Hills. Two Sisters, and Remembering a Sister of the Heart

Sara Hillis here to tell you about this week's very special edition of Come by the Hills, Mushroom FM's Folk and Celtic music show. This week, we're doing something we've done periodically over the years, featuring multiple versions of a song. In this case, it's the strange tale of the Two Sisters. It involves love, jealousy, murder, magical harps and/or fiddles and justice from beyond the grave, and sometimes even swans. We'll be playing several versions of this song throughout the show and sharing what we know of its origins and history.

Revisiting Buffy Saint-Marie and More, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Yes, it's time once again for another encore presentation from the CBTH archives. This one's from this past June, and it features the amazing career and artistry of Buffy Saint-Marie, as well as some songs from Quebec. We were celebrating National Indigenous Peoples' Day here in Canada, as well as Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day in Quebec. It was an interesting episode for me to do, I think that Buffy's work is very topical right now, and I hope you enjoy reliving it, or perhaps living it for the very first time!

Hello again. Sara Hillis here to share some exciting news! On Friday, August 21, Come by the Hills turns four years old! We've had some adventures over the past four years, and I'll be sharing my own memories of past shows and you're invited to share yours, if you have a mind. We'll be playing some great music along the way as well of course, and generally, it'll be a fun party. So come and celebrate with me!

Folkish Fun Once Again, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hi there! Sara Hillis here to tell you what's coming up for you in just over twelve hours as I'm posting this. It's another episode of come by the Hills! I hope to bring it to you live, but it depends on the rather stormy weather today. It may make more sense to do a voice-tracked show for you this week, but hey. Maybe I'll get some of The Snow Man's nerve and just broadcast live in spite of the thunder! Anyway, regardless of how it's coming to you, I promise you a new show today, filled with great Folk music with a Celtic sound!

It's an Encore Presentation of our Tribute to John Mann and Spirit of the West, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello again! Sara Hillis here to let you know that Come by the Hills won't be live on Sunday night, but will instead be revisiting our Spirit of the West special, originally aired on November 24, 2019, in which we honoured this great Canadian band and their lead singer John Mann, who died on November 20, 2019, due to early-onset Alzheimer's Disease. He wrote provocative songs and was not afraid to have an opinion, and oh yes, his music was often tinged with that lovely Celtic sound.

Find Your Folkish Fix, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Hello! Sara Hillis here once again to tell you that come by the Hills is back for another three hours of amazing Folk and Celtic music this week. Now, some of you may be asking: "Where did she get the name 'come by the Hills anyway?' Is it a play on her name perhaps?" Well, no. It has nothing to do with my name at all, but it is the title of a song which may be about Ireland or about Scotland. There is some controversy here, and I take no side--well, not really.

Celtic and Folk Favourites, this Week on Come by the Hills!

Sara Hillis here to let you know that Folk and Celtic music takes over the Mushroom airwaves (or bits and bytes or something) for three hours at 8:00 PM Eastern this very day! Yes, three hours of great Folk and Celtic music, and then there's me. Best of all, it's live! Live, I tell you!
