Cecil Thompkins, Saturday, February 29

February 29, 2020 07:00 PM until February 29, 2020 10:00 PM

Not often do you get to see music on February 29, but tonight is one of those nights.

Drawing inspiration from musical interests such as The Avett Brothers, Larry Keel and Natural Bridge, Old Crow Medicine Show, Bob Dylan, The Band, Trampled by Turtles, Cecil Thompkins continues to wow audiences anytime he picks up a guitar (or harmonica).  Playing a wide variety of roots, americana and folk music, you'll love the sounds of old school and contemporary classics, played with heartfelt passion.

Cecil Thompkins writes and performs bluegrass-inspired acoustic folk with a unique perspective and passion. Born and raised in northeast Alabama in a rural area of tin-roofed barns and barbwire fences, Cecil has traveled throughout the Southeast gathering inspiration from the people, landscape, and stories of this beautiful region.

Blending modern subjects and musical forms with those of old, Cecil's performances include high-energy bluegrass-styled tunes and explorations of blues rhythms punctuated with mournful heart-felt songs. Rooted in tradition yet committed to bringing the music forward, Cecil Thompkins has recently released the Eat the Ghost EP. With a magnetic mixture of toe-tapping rhythms and emotionally charged lyrics, Eat the Ghost is likely to be a favorite of many Americana listeners.

He loves performing, recording, writing, and daydreaming about music. He also likes to paddle a canoe, pedal a bike, hike a trail, etc.

Enjoy seafood and sangria specials all night while supporting Seneca's blossoming local music scene.
