Also primarily self-taught, Michael Gerholdt enjoys playing a smattering of traditional music, acoustic blues, American primitive, folk, rock and pop. Much has his own imprint to accommodate a
fingerstyle approach to the guitar, which contributes to Three Legged Hill
's distinctive sound. From pre-war Piedmont blues, the Delmore Brothers and Doc Watson, Ry Cooder and classic folk-rock
artists too numerous to list, influences are broad and deep. Without losing sight of the original, a personal interpretation breathes new life into the music of our times.
Some of the repertoire of Three Legged Hill
is origional material by Gerholdt, who is also the duo's primary vocalist. .
