THEIR INSTRUMENTS AND VOICES BLENDED PERFECTLY… AS WELL AS BEING EXTREMELY TALENTED MUSICIANS, THE DUO WERE QUITE THE STORYTELLERS AND HAD THE PUNTERS IN STITCHES WITH THEIR WILD TALES AND MUSICAL MASH-UPS. – SILVER TIGER MEDIA
Tim McMillan & Rachel Snow are a duo from Melbourne, Australia, based in Germany and currently immersed in an endless tour entertaining and delighting audiences across the world. Tim is a percussive finger style guitarist and outlandish storyteller and Rachel an exceptional violinist and accomplice in Tim’s whimsical narrative.
With over 120 concerts delivered every year across Europe, Japan and Australia, the duo’s thirst for exploration and inspiration is growing. Their lust for travel seeps into the soundscapes of their live shows with some imagining the music as a moving soundtrack. Along with emotive moments the audience is captivated by athletic guitar stunts, interwoven violin antics and a magical blend of vocals. Tim’s psychedelic and sometimes true stories of life on the road and tales from the Australian bush become increasingly eccentric and outrageous as the show progresses. The audience leaves feeling that they have themselves been on a wonderful and colourful adventure.
Tim and Rachel are versatile and perform an inventive mix of styles including Celtic rock, folk, metal & jazz. They accept the challenge of any stage and can be found performing at festivals, clubs, theatres and living rooms. They have opened up for fusion guitar legend Al Di Meola at the Dachauer Sommerfest in Germany and have also supported hard rock band Ugly Kid Joe on European and Australian tours in 2016/2017. They were main support for Motorhead’s Phil Campbell tour in Germany in November 2018.
