Distinctive string band folk music from Cincinnati
The Tillers are Mike Oberst, Sean Geil, Aaron Geil & Joe Macheret. The Tillers arose out of Cincinnati’s West Side punk scene and have been thumping their own distinctive sound of string band style folk music for a decade, riding it all over the country and across the sea. Four studio albums and one live record have won them praise as modern folk storytellers of the national soundscape. Their shows attract an assortment of gray-haired mechanics, neo-hippies, farmers, punkers, professors, and random strays all stomping, clapping, singing, and belting outbursts of “John Henry!” and “Darlin’ Corey.” Check out the Ark debut of this unique Ohio group!
