The Good Thymes Ceilidh (kay-lee)
Band formed in 2008. They play a wide variety of Scottish tune styles in the form of jigs, reels, strathspeys, hornpipes, marches, waltzes, and lovely slow airs. The band is comprised of four musicians: fiddles and guitar often changing up the sounds with penny whistle, bodhràn, mandolin, vocals, and occasional step dancing and bagpipes. This group shares their love of Scottish music and performs repertoire that illustrates the shared influences from the old time traditional music often enjoyed in Appalachia and beyond.
