The thumping tommys are a collection of talented musicians specialising in old-time music. Having played at many great festival stages, bars and cafes, 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.
