The Big High Hills are Brooklyn's very own bluegrass inspired psych rock swamp extravaganza! The trio features Colin O'Con singing and playing guitar, Steve Pauley picking the banjo and Tom Kotik (Art Omi: Artists, 2001) thumping on the electric bass.

Whether careening through high potency pickin’ tunes or crooning sensitive love ballads, Big High Hills brings on the funky foot stomping roots vibe that gets everyone down with the groove!  

Colin O'Con: guitar, voice
Steve Pauley: banjo
Tom Kotik: bass guitar

with Taylor McGill

In this workshop, we will become well-practiced in the habit active noticing. The normal and seemingly mundane things in our environment will become the subjects for extraordinary prose. We will step away from our desks, our writerly solitude, and with a journal in hand we will collect the details of the day by wandering, watching, gathering, communicating, moving, playing, and eavesdropping. In our journals we might scribble, glue torn newspaper, tape gum wrappers, or press flowers. We will perform wild experiments; arranging and collaging and collaborating to generate imaginative writing that engages, extends, and defies the "rules" of various genres including poems, short stories, plays, letters, comics, questions, and more!
