Ward Thomas

Ward Thomas appearing at this event

Hampshire and Country music may not be obvious bed fellows but twin sisters Catherine and Lizzy Ward Thomas (who have been singing harmonies together since childhood) have had Country music in their blood ever since they were introduced to the sounds of Carrie Underwood, Dixie Chicks and Alison Krauss by a Canadian cousin in their early teens. With one listen to their vocal cadences and close harmonies, soon Nashville and Hampshire suddenly don’t seem all that far apart.

Twinnie

Twinnie’s songs are steeped in country, but really they’re powerful pop with bewitching stories at their core. Sometimes they stray in to rock, often they embrace electronics.

Truckstop Honeymoon

Truckstop Honeymoon play tough, funny, hi-octane songs about interstates, pinball arcades and true love. Katie Euliss pounds a doghouse bass while Mike West punishes a banjo mercilessly. Together they charm festival crowds and drive roadhouse drinkers to the dance-floor.
