Equinox Ball

Tuatha Dea

Tuatha Dea, the Appalachian, Celtic, Tribal, Rock Band (and family) from Gatlinburg TN has been called pure primal energy with a Celtic, World and ROCK twist. The bands eclectic sound blends the tribal vibe of primitive drums with conventional and non-conventional instruments to create a real evolutionary musical crossover that defies category and genre! Combining primal rhythms, melodic and ethereal ballads, screaming guitar riffs with an Appalachian/Celtic vibe this FAMILY born of a family drum circle delivers an authentic tribal and clannish feel that not only draws the audience into the music but into the moment and clan as well. Their rhythmic groove and interaction naturally inspires audience participation which has become a staple of their performances. From the beginning the band has embraced its Celtic heritage and meshed the traditional music of Scotland and Ireland with their own bold blend of mainstream rock, mountain drumming and Appalachian blues to produce a truly unique sound that has a universal appeal!

Tuatha Dea is an Old Irish phrase adopted from the Celtic mythology of the Tuatha de Danaan whose literary history originates in Ireland and Great Britain. The name “Tuatha Dea” literally translates into “Children of The Gods”. The band’s Celtic influence stems directly from this historical clan which lived and ruled for a period in ancient Ireland and who were later destined to become the stuff of legend and basis of Celtic mythology. Those who dwelt beneath the burrows. The Children of the Gods.

Conceived by Danny Mullikin (percussion, guitar and vocals), his wife Rebecca (lead vocals and hand drums), His son Brandon Mullikin (lead guitar), and his daughter Tesea Dawson Mullikin (bass, keyboard and flute); the band’s evolution has organically grown to include Rebecca’s sister Kathy Holman (lead vocals, handrum and keyboard), and Kathy’s fiancé Chris Bush (didgeridoo, native American flute, penny whistle, bagpipes and drums). Add in Dave Rush on rhythm and lead guitar and Chantal Sue Haskell on Violin and Keyboard and you have the family known as Tuatha Dea!
