Tammerlin (The Kennedy Center)

Tammerlin

Formerly known as Tory Voodoo, Tammerlin consists of the husband and wife duo, guitarist Arvid Smith and singer-percussionist Lee Hunter who blend electric and acoustic sounds to create the "folk of the '90s". There aren't too many bands who truly don't sound like anyone else, but it's quite true of Tory Voodoo, even down to their name (which comes from the Celtic Island of Torai, and the voodoo, the cast of their sound). This is the folk of the 90's, where original compositions and songs from the tradition meet the electric sound of Robert Fripp and Bill Nelson. Between them, Arvid Smith and Lee Hunter create a swirling tapestry of music that's received critical acclaim across the U.S.
