Meet the Tinkers

Thistledown Tinkers, the powerful music duo featuring Trip Rogers and Tom Eure, are on a mission…to make Celtic music that forces folks to stand up and take notice. This is not the fragile, romanticized Celtic music you hear in movie soundtracks, but the kind that makes you sing along and stomp your feet.

These seasoned music veterans from NC, weave traditional Scottish and Irish music with original creations while adding a southern swagger that sets the stage on fire. With an impressive arsenal of instruments including guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, dulcimer, and concertina, musicianship is at the core of Thistledown Tinkers.  Their stage presence creates a rebel rousing party that not only draws fans in, but makes them feel like a part of the show.

Thistledown Tinkers deliver the beauty and tradition of Celtic music, new and old, with the guts, showmanship, and attitude of an arena rock band. You will find them wherever kinsmen are gathered and the craic is lively!
