Based in east Tennessee and western North Carolina, Thistle Dew is a vocal collaboration dedicated to preserving and perpetuating the two forms of "roots" music which are nearest and dearest to our hearts -- Celtic and Appalachian. By blending the best of both we've created something new and unique: "Celtalachian" Music.
The Dew Drops have often been told that our harmonies are magical, and all we have to say about that is
Lead and harmony vocals, mountain dulcimer, Irish bodhran and flat-foot percussion.
Would you like Thistle Dew to perform at your event?
