Thunder and Rain is a 5-piece acoustic Americana band from the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Consisting of acoustic guitar, mandolin, dobro, upright bass and fiddle.
Though their roots are firmly in traditional bluegrass and folk they fuse melodic elements of rock and pop with acoustic instrumentation, to create a distinctive contemporary sound of their own.
The release of their superb 2017-issued “Start Believing” album stimulated the UK media into paying serious attention. Reviews were fittingly flattering and they got a load of radio exposure too. FolkRadioUK compared them with “the early days of 10,000 Maniacs” whilst RnR magazanie declared “There’s something special happening here” and AmericanaUK recommended them as having “a lovely warm feeling that will brighten your day”
The band have toured Ireland before but this is their first visit to the UK mainland.
Support comes from nineteen year old Nottingham based singer songwriter Louis Croft whose influences include Donovan and Jake Bugg.
