The Thumping Tommys *

27th March 2023

The Thumping Tommy’s are Benedict Scrivener, Alex Hunter and Giles Casswell.

Starting sometime around 2012 from humble beginnings jamming on Ben and Giles' sofa, the Tommy's have since performed regular shows at folk festivals and venues in the UK, Belgium, Norway, Germany, Estonia, France and elsewhere. They recently recorded their debut album of original songs at Woodworm Studios, founded by UK folk legends Fairport Convention and subsequently were asked by Fairport to perform at their Cropredy festival in 2022.

With a wide range of influences from bluegrass and blues to Irish and American folk, the Tommy's have quickly gained a reputation for playing fun energetic music fused with depth and wide emotional range.

Straddling the borders of art-folk, pop and world music with a touch of ska, Elly Tree, are Elly (aka Helen Woodbridge) songwriter on vocals, ukulele, banjo and guitar, percussionist extraordinaire Merlyn Bruce and the sublime bass of Andy Heasman who also adds backing vocals.“Quirky, intelligent and irresistible folk songs with a driving ukelele and a voice that seems to summon up the gods.” Kath Tait

She has been recording a new CD recently and  would like to showcase it to the good folks of Colchester.
