THE TILLERS: Hot Cincinnati 4-piece, The Tillers have been thumping their own distinctive style of stringband-driven folk for a decade. Four studio albums and one live record have won them praise as modern folk heroes on both sides of the Atlantic. Exhilarating and rowdy, they count many of their peers as fans. Iris Dement, for instance, says: “I could listen to them all night long!”
Wearing many different hats, the material ranges across everything from traditional folk, Appalachian old-time, bluegrass and the crustier side of honky tonk and they always rock the house and leave audiences screaming for more.
