The Thomsons are a contemporary folk/roots acoustic duo that specialise in original music that tells a story. Their music is based on a personal, oblique perspective of the beautiful world in which we live. Through the music of The Thomsons, be prepared to dust off your passport, add a few obscure visas, and meet a cast of characters, including a Texan diner waitress masquerading as the Statue of Liberty, a Central Asian small-time drug mule, an aspirational Bougainvillean boy in a maelstrom of anarchy, and reflect on the rhetoric of a post-apocalyptic world. Be there as Singapore falls, hang out in a trendy Malaccan café with fellow life travellers, and take the road trip of a lifetime through West Bengal armed only with a Monkey God keychain.
The Thomsons are regulars at vineyards, restaurants and small independent venues with the emphasis on a fine acoustic sound, and a listening audience. They have performed in the Hunter Valley in association with concerts by major international acts (Sting, America, Rod Stewart, Elton John to name a few), and can happily say they have been “supported” by some of the great names in music.
A set from The Thomsons is a nuanced journey through life’s byways, past and present.
