About the tour

St Patrick’s Day & the Thumping Tommy’s

The Thumping Tommy’s are Benedict Scrivener, Alex Hunter and Giles Casswell. They started some time around 2012, when Ben and Giles used to live with each other in North London. Every Friday Al would come over and everyone would jam old Dubliners and Leadbelly tunes they’d picked up from their parent’s record collections, and drink cans of Guinness and Holstein Pils staying up til about six in the morning. After realising this was really fun they decided to try get some gigs.

In 2013 the Tommys had gathered enough songs to be able to play around pubs in London. Around this time they were picked up by Jim Beam bourbon company who took the Tommys on a distillery tour around Europe. It turned out Bluegrass and bourbon was a great combination, and the Tommys have gained a reputation for playing fun energetic music fused with depth and wide emotional range.

Since those early days the Tommys have performed regular shows at various folk festivals and venues in the UK, Belgium, Norway, and elsewhere. They recently recorded their debut album of original songs at Woodworm Studios, founded by UK folk legends Fairport Convention. The album also features Georgina Leach on the Violin, Tim Fairhall on the bass and Cherise Adams-Burnett on guest vocals. The Fairport Convention subsequently invited the Tommys to play their famous Fairports Cropredy Convention festival in August 2020, after meeting and playing a session with them at Costa Del Folk festival in Portugal in October 2019.
