We had this young American bluegrass band at M’boro Town Hall last spring & they were absolutely amazing. So we’ve brought them up the A19 to Newcastle.
From the rocky mountains of Colorado, Thunder & Rain come to toon. With their roots in traditional bluegrass and country folk, the five-piece has established a strong footing, appealing to the same audience as The Stray Birds, Sarah Jarosz and Mandolin Orange. Thunder and Rain seamlessly blends their favourite elements of bluegrass, country, pop and alt-rock to cultivate their own take on the American roots music traditions. Driven by the catchy choruses and dreamy melodies sung by Erinn Peet-Lukes, the band perfectly supports her heartfelt songwriting with strong country grooves, lush harmonies and rich instrumental decoration.
