What Up, Cuz?! : Michigan Indie-Folksters The Thornbills Play Live

February 7, 2014

A trio called the Thornbills, fronted by cousins Jim Wiegand and Tamara Finlay and accompanied by violinist Dan Wannick, blend a bit of their eastern European lineage with more modern folk pop sensibilities.

The band released an EP with Jack White’s Third Man Records in 2012. Now in the midst of recording their first full-length record, The Thornbills will test out new and old material when they play tonight at the Corktown Tavern.

Wiegand tells WDET’s Travis Wright that he and his cousin have been playing together since they were kids.
