About Common Thyme

Common Thyme is a very exciting group formed by four musicians who all have a passion for performing.
Folk band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

We are all experienced musicians, passionate about making music together, with a wide range of repertoire from genres such as classical, folk, pop and musical theatre. Our playing style is heavily influenced by Celtic overtones. This music would be suitable for a wedding ceremony, background for the drinks reception, or for an evening party including a few ceilidh dances. With 2 fiddlers, a bouzouki/banjo player and bass we can cover most things.

This group played at a private event we attended recently. They were sensational. Their repertoire is varied and they obviously enjoy what they do, which passes on to the audience. Brilliant. Thoroughly recommend.
