Apologies for any inconvenience caused, but for obvious reasons this show has now been cancelled. Those of you who bought tickets from We Got Tickets will have automatically received a refund by now.

If you bought physical tickets from a particular shop, you will be able to go back to that shop and get your refund. If you bought tickets at one of our shows then of course please just e-mail us if you’d like a refund.

If you’d like to support us by not claiming a refund then that would be awesome as it looks like we will have lost 3 months worth of shows and any non claimed refund will go towards paying out the monies we have lost in posters, flyers, deposits etc.

Thank you all so much,

Thunder and rain appearing at the Wave Maiden Southsea in May 2020

We’re delighted to welcome the amazing bluegrass-based Thunder & Rain from Colorado for our first ever show at our new small and intimate venue, The Wave Maiden!

As usual this will be a seated show, and we’re very excited to be bringing this amazing band to this amazing venue. We know you’re gonna love it!

Thunder and rain appearing at the Wave Maiden Southsea in May 2020Erinn Peet Lukes has an angelic voice that soars over a blanket of acoustic sound. Thunder and Rain’s music lives somewhere in between folk, country, bluegrass, and pop, made cohesive by Peet-Lukes’ “nimble, yet devastating” vocals, heartfelt lyricism and a high level of musicianship from mandolinist Dylan McCarthy, bassist Ian Haegele and Allen Cooke on Dobro.

Fans love Peet Lukes strong, yet vulnerable way of conveying her songs. She’s been compared to Natalie Maines, Linda Ronstadt, and Alison Krauss. Haegele graduated with a masters in Bass Performance from UNC Greeley, and McCarthy and Cooke have risen to the top of their fields on their respective instruments. Cooke won the Rockygrass Dobro Championship in 2014 and McCarthy won the Rockygrass Mandolin Championship in 2019.

Thunder and Rain released their third album, Passing in the Night, January 2020. The album was written after Peet-Lukes went through a break up within the band. If the band’s third album was a movie, it would be a series of vingnettes, detailing the different ways two people can meet, connect, and then disappear from each others lives.

This music is inspired by a whole host of genres, from classic country to old time, bluegrass, pop, and folk. The strings add dynamic shifts for the confessional songwriting that comes directly from her life.
