In the southern Appalachian mountains, fiddle and banjo players have been reveling in the complimentary textural relationship of the two instruments for hundreds of years. The rhythmic momentum, undeniable warmth & endless potential of this down-home duet is celebrated in it’s full spirit by Brendan Cooney and Nikolai Fox. Cooney and Fox established Noggin Hill in collaboration with the visceral, adept and fluent bassist, Chris Coyle in 2009. This undeniably danceable and fantastically listenable band are up to their funny hats in mountain sounds.

Based in Philadelphia, Noggin Hill specializes in performing at events. We love to stand and play fiddle tunes in the field while guests arrive and the merriment ensues. We are always flattered when invited to accompany a ceremony, and we’ve got so many great old time, countryand bluegrass songs we love to sing when an amplified performance is called for.
