We are musicians in West Virginia - the heart of America’s Appalachian Mountains. Like many people here, several of us trace our ancestry to immigrants who came to this place from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, Wales, and England in search of a new life. They brought with them their music and independent spirits, and settled in our beautiful forested hills and isolated green valleys. These roots can be heard in “traditional” mountain music and probably influence the special way that Celtic music tends to resonate with people in our region.
For us it has meant a special attraction to traditional songs and tunes from Celtic lands. This, along with the many contemporary musical influences of our life in America — rock and roll, folk, bluegrass, big band, classical, country music, the Beatles and “British Invasion” of the ‘60’s — and a strong connection to our home in these mountains, lends a distinctive Appalachian Celtic flavor to our music.
Welcome to our website. We hope you enjoy the visit and become a little more connected with Mountain Thyme and our long legacy of performing and recording our own brand of Appalachian flavored Celtic music.
We have four recordings which capture many of the traditional and original songs and tunes that we have performed. You will find more information about each of these CD's, as well as purchasing information by clicking Music.
