Keith Dill had a guitar in his hand by the time he was six years old. He is a multi-instrumentalist, and has won numerous awards. Keith was a member of the original configuration of Patent Pending, playing fiddle with the band before departing for Ferrum College in Franklin County, Virginia, where he took the opportunity to learn old time fiddle tunes from local musicians. Keith moved on to MCV in Richmond, Virginia, where he played with Randy Wallerís band Silver Saddle.

Keith's musical style ranges from Appalachian old-time to Louisiana bayou funk. He is frequently featured on CDs and recording projects across the Washington, DC metropolitan area including David A. Alberding, Carey Colvin, the String Dusters, and others. Keith and his wife Viqui can also be found performing with their group, The Dill Pickers.

Keith re-joined Patent Pending in December of 2008. His outstanding fiddling is a key element in the bandís sound.
