THE TILLERS have toured the East coast, the Midwest and West, the Appalachian south and even the UK and Ireland. They were awarded CityBeat Magazine’s Cincinnati Entertainment Award for Best Folk and Americana act in 2009, 2010, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Veteran NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw featured The Tillers on a documentary about US Route 50. Brokaw showcased the group’s song “There is Road (Route 50)” as a testimony to the highway’s role as a connective tissue of the nation. They have shared the stage with a broad swath of national touring acts, ranging from renowned folk legends such as Doc Watson, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Guy Clark, Country Joe McDonald, Jerry Douglas, Iris Dement, Pokey LaFarge and The Carolina Chocolate Drops to rambunctious rock daredevils like the Legendary Shack Shakers. The band’s musical growth can be heard on their latest CD Hand On The Plow and many more bootleg releases.
The Tillers will be joined by Hu Town Holler and Mamadrones.
HU TOWN HOLLER was literally born on the banks of the mighty Ohio River. This newly formed power trio have been focusing on recording and will release their first CD of original material by summer.
MAMADRONES are currently touring the Midwest extensively and plan to get back to recording after the tour.
