Quickly establishing a reputation as one of the most sought after groups on the British folk music scene, The Thumping Tommys are a collection of talented musicians specialising in old-time music. Having played internationally at many great festival stages, bars and clubs, The Thumping Tommys play a heady brew of Irish and American folk music performed with a distinctly English style, which has established them as one of the most entertaining groups working in the UK right now.
We have recently released an album, ‘Live in Bergen’ which is available on Spotify, itunes, Amazon Music, or you can drop us an email to buy a CD copy!
