The Tillers are easily the most beloved band of the Cincinnati area. They have toured extensively throughout the Midwest, South, East Coast and Great Lakes region for the past 4 years.
The Tillers have opened for the likes of Doc Watson, Taj Mahal, Ramblin’ Jack Eliott, Iris Dement, Guy Clark, Jerry Douglas, Chatham County Line, Hackensaw Boys, Legendary Shack Shakers, .357 String Band, Reverend Horton Heat, Justin Townes Earle and Country Joe McDonald.
“Much of the Tillers’ material (and the name of the band itself) hearkens back to a bygone American work ethic. But if their superb-yet-tasteful musicianship, mind blowing songcraft and relentless touring schedule are any indication, that work ethic is alive and well. Check these guys out.” - Col. J.D. Wilkes, Legendary Shack Shakers
“In their lives, and in their music, all three band members embrace a return to simplicity, a longing for freedom, and hope for the future. It is fitting then that these American Characters would devote a song to Highway 50, a road that, like the country it traverses, has seen its share of hardship and history and still keeps pressing forward.” – Tom Brokaw, American Character Along Highway 50
