Enjoy some lively Celtic sounds when Thistledown Tinkers performs at the Charles Mack Citizen Center on Saturday, the final performance in this season's Mooresville Concerts series.
The duo of Trip Rogers and Tom Eure has performed at numerous regional festivals, including the Loch Norman Highland Games.
Last year, Thistledown Tinkers was featured in a BBC Northern Ireland documentary on the influence of Celtic music in the United States.
Rogers has been a part of the Charlotte music scene for nearly 30 years. He has played in rock, blues, country and gospel acts and performs as a solo acoustic artist. He has released three CDs as a singer/songwriter and in 2008 won the inaugural Charlotte Music Awards Singer/Songwriter Showcase.
He's opened for such national acts as Leon Russell, Hal Ketchum, Fred Eaglesmith and Molly Hatchet. He leads his own blues/rock act, the Trip Rogers Band, and plays with Eure in the Celtic rock band Stirling Bridge.
Eure has performed at top venues such as The Blue Bird Café in Nashville, CBGB's Gallery in New York City and festivals throughout the South. He has opened for some of the best acts in the business, including his musical hero, the late Warren Zevon.
Eure has released four solo CDs and plays 14 instruments.
Saturday's concert is at 7:30 p.m. in Joe V. Knox Auditorium inside the Mack Center, 215 N. Main St. A "Meet the Artists" reception will follow the concert.
