Tuatha Dea, The Appalachian, Celtic,Tribal, Rock Band (and family) from Gatlinburg TN has been called pure primal energy with a Celtic,World and ROCK twist. The bands eclectic sound blends the tribal vibe of primitive drums with conventional and non conventional instruments to create a real evolutionary musucal crossover that defies category and genre! Combining primal rhythms, melodic and ethereal ballads, screaming guitar riffs with an Appalachian/Celtic vibe this FAMILY born of a family drum circle delivers an authentic tribal and clannish feel that not only draws the audience into the music but into the moment and clan as well. Their rhythmic groove and interaction naturally inspires audience participation which has become a staple of their performances. From the beginning the band has embraced its Celtic heritage and meshed the traditional music of Scotland and Ireland with their own bold blend of mainstream rock, mountain drumming and Appalachian blues to produce a truly unique sound that has a universal appeal! Dubbed “The Eclectic Steam Punk Partridge Family in Kilts and Corsets” and “The Appalachian Fae”, this band is REAL family!!!
TGIF is Rain or Shine event.
