Eric & Suzy Thompson play vintage music from the American South, at the intersection of Cajun, country blues and Appalachian. Old time fiddle tunes in odd tunings, cinematic ballads, hot bluegrass flatpicking on guitar and mandolin, prewar blues songs, Cajun dance tunes with lyrics in authentic Cajun French, and the occasional kalamatiano or danzon. They use a variety of instruments: fiddle, guitar and mandolin, plus 10-stringed cuatro from Puerto Rico and the one-row Cajun button accordion.

With over 30 years of making music together under their collective belt, Eric & Suzy have a large repertoire, and will be happy to play your requests!

Eric's new CD, Kleptograss, is a multi-cultural romp with all-stars Jody Stecher and Scott Nygaard. Suzy's latest is a duet CD with resonator guitar and uke goddess Del Rey. Eric and Suzy have recorded 12 Cds together, as a duo and with many bands, including the California Cajun Orchestra, Bluegrass Intentions, Todalo Shakers, Blue Flame String Band, and the Backwoods Band. They've also performed and/or recorded with many roots music stars including Maria Muldaur, David Grisman, Jim Kweskin & Geoff Muldaur, Dave Alvin, Jerry Garcia, Mike Seeger, and Laurie Lewis. The Thompsons live in Berkeley, California and rarely tour, so don't miss this chance to hear two true masters of American traditional music.

Please visit their website to learn more about their music!
