"With strong 'words of earnest' impeachment and yet so cautiously that he prefers to quote old dead authors..."
Andrew Steimetz-1848 in History of the Jesuits.
Welcome Friends. I write. I sing. I pick and fiddle a little. I perform. I record at home. I self publish.
I write for all occasions: Fiction-short and long, lyrics, melodies, artist bios and liner notes, personal reviews, speeches, ghost writing and copy of all sorts. I feature artist interviews and offer tips on songwriting. I spotlight non-mainstream artists, musicians, and interesting folks from time to time. (Check out fiddle bow master David Bragger and sample his new cd Big Fancy now!) and I blog about various music and writing themes, especially de-cluttering the mind to open up your creative side. The "Words of Ernest" page is sort of a memoir. I've had some entertaining and bizarre tangents in my life with more to come, so this page lets you inside my head, while defining my imagination and writing style.
I also offer my original songs and stories on this site. Words of Ernest is a word and music based website built upon need; my need to create and express myself, and your need to be clearly and colorfully expressed. If you wonder what inspired the name, "Words of Ernest", click here. Coming soon- the beautiful handmade beaded CloudShadow jewelry made by my wife/soulmate, and co-editor, Patti Hill. Welcome to “Words of Ernest”.
“Ernie has been a great asset as part of the Hartford Team over the past several years; helping us with his song writing and musical talents to help grow the John Hartford Memorial Festival. He is a delight to work with” John Hotze (right)- Founder and promoter- John Hartford Memorial Festival.
"Ernie Hill is a very valuable and dedicated member of our core team at JHMF. He has been in charge of our fiddle and song writing contest. He also writes a blog on our website and provides copy for everything we send out to the press. We feel very fortunate to be associated with him."
