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!
