Overview

The Thomsons are singer-songwriters and performers that place the lyric at the heart of the song. They are keen life observers with a penchant for exotic travel, and the story always remains central to the performance. Acoustic guitar, keyboard, flute and vocals provide the framework that supports deeply personal storytelling.  

The Thomsons have performed at festivals, folk clubs, vineyards, house concerts and restaurants – in fact anywhere that supports live music and a listening audience. They provide an oblique perspective of the beautiful, and sometimes quirky world in which we live. Through the music of The Thomsons be prepared to dust off your passport, add a few obscure visas, and meet a cast of unique and unforgettable characters that would enliven any dinner party’.

Reviews

"Loved the storytelling of their music and really enjoyed getting to chat to them before and after their show". - Vitamin Dee Radio Jockey, Wollongong NSW

“What a great performance by the Thomson's at the Woy Woy Opera House last night. If you saw Geographica you'll know what I mean. It had everything - great songs, a moving and amazing presentation. This was more than a great concert. It was emotionally engrossing education and grand entertainment, a world travelogue with a well balanced dose of adventure, history and politics, intimate personal stories and adventures galore.”. - Michael Fine

“The Musos were at Eudlo this last week on Sunday November 5 with featured act “The Thomsons”. Scott Thomson is a friend from Winterbreak and with his partner Jenny Thomson make up the folk duo which came up from Newcastle in NSW to play for us. They had the Musos’ good mate Jodi Murtha joining them on bass and harmony and what a beautiful sound they make together. Scott is a very fine songwriter and guitarist with a warm baritone voice and Jenny added tasteful piano, flute and tempted us with some harmonica fills along with her harmony, which, complemented by Jodi’s voice made for some exquisite music”. - Michael Whiticker
