(ex Low Country Boys) - Welcome to the Thompson Brothers' blog, by Mark Thompson and Graeme Thompson, founders and original lead vocalists of the Low Country Boys. These days we're doing something similar but simpler - old-time gospel music in the classic mandolin/guitar "brother duet" tradition of the early 1900s. This blog will tell you more about the great brother duets, and other aspects of evangelical rural American culture and its Scotch-Irish / Ulster-Scots cultural roots - and a wee bit about our own music too.
The folk at 2nd Newtownards have been doing some advertising! Thanks to Stephen for letting us know about this great poster - we are taking the whole hour and are really looking forward to it - hope to see you there tomorrow night!
