Tomato Tomato is husband and wife team, John and Lisa McLaggan. This quirky twosome perform a mix of bluegrass jazz, blues and folk music. Their dynamic live performances feature John on vocals and guitar with Lisa on vocals, washboard, bass drum and tambourine. It’s not unusual for her to be doing all four things at once!
Loving harmonies, old-timey guitar and up-cycled percussion create the unmistakeable sound that has led Tomato Tomato to become one of the most sought-after Canadian folk acts. Honours include; Regional Winners for CBCs Searchlight Competition 2014, nominations for six MNB awards with three wins in 2015, ECMA nominations for Roots/Trad album of the year 2015 and Fan Choice video of the year 2016. That’s impressive!
Sarah saw them in Canada last years and said "The duo’s unique sound, strong vocal harmonies and colourful original music are guaranteed to shake, rattle and washboard every inch of the village hall."
