FLINT HILL SPECIAL

The freshly reconfigured sound of Flint Hill Special continues the tradition and songs of

Glen Wilbourn and Johnny Miller. 

With the recent retirement of our band founder, Glen Wilbourn, the band continues to play traditional bluegrass and Gospel music. You will enjoy the added new emphasis on “first-class” three-part harmony, flat-pick’n and cross-pick’n, a female vocalist singing both lead and harmony and unique instrumentation with distinct different styles.

Our crowd-pleasing performance now has more of a contemporary sound, while still carrying on the deeply steeped tradition of Bluegrass music.  In today’s fast-paced, high-tech world Flint Hill Special takes it up a notch and lets the music breath!

Flint Hill Special will continue the legacy as a Southwest Regional and touring Band. having performed Traditional Bluegrass and Gospel Music since 1984. Flint Hill Special has entertained across the Southwest at Festivals such as Blythe, CA, Wickenburg, Colorado River Bull Head City, Arcosanti, Barbara’s Barn Tolleson, AZ  and Logandale, NV, Old Time Fiddlin’ Contest Payson, AZ, Lake Havasu Bluegrass On The Beach Lake Havasu City, AZ, Prescott Arizona Bluegrass Festival, as well as Bluegrass festivals in the south such as Turkey Track in Arkansas, Old Mobeetie Bluegrass Festival Mobeetie, TX, Chicasaw Festival Duncan, OK, and in New Mexico, Pickamania, Kingston, and Elephant Days, Elephant Butte.

Flint Hill Special performed at the second annual Viva Las VeGrass Bluegrass Festival, North Las Vegas, Nevada in October of 2018. At the festival, they released their newest album, I Smell Covers, which was also the band's first album featuring their newer, contemporary sound.
