The group of musicians was composed of Bryn Upton on guitar, Rob Caswell on banjo, Walt Michael on bass guitar, Henry Reiff on bass, and Ben Reiff on drums.

Common Ground of the Hill was brought by a group of students in Professor Ambrose’s Writing for Non-Profit class, as a publicity stunt for their class. “We have been working with them for the past couple weeks,” says Delaney Firer, one of the students involved in the stunt. “This is our way to show who they are and what they do for the community.”

The group of students responsible for bringing such joyful ensemble consisted of Delaney Firer, Stefan Specian, Allen Calbert, and Justin Doak.

When asked about the purpose and origins of Common Ground on the Hill, founder Walt Micheal states, “We founded Common Ground on the Hill in 1994. We did it to teach music and inspire dialogue among musicians, as a way to show that we can find a common ground through the arts.”
