Derek Bodkin and Tommy Knowles make up the guitar and banjo front line of “Derek Bodkin’s Hovering Breadcat Folk Ensemble.” The “HBC” have really made an impact on the Monterey Music scene, performing in First Night Monterey, The West End Festival, on KRML 102.1FM, KPIG 107.5FM, and much more. In September 2017, Derek Bodkin will be competing in the “Masters of Musical Whistling” international competition in Los Angeles as he is a champion whistler. Among Tommy Knowles many talents – he is a vault of wonderful historic Sea Shanties – which is fitting as he is also a Jellyfish Expert biologist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Harry Thomas is the rockin' harp monster in Monterey - and a fabulous singer/songwriter singing romantic trail ridin' tales of the old west. These guys play intimate shows together as the "Breadcat Trio" - bringing a special soulful Americana Groove magic to the stage. With a mixture of Folk, Rock, Jazz, Gospel, Country, Sea Shanties and more – they are truly an Americana sound and are stoked to share their mixture of old favorites and striking original music with you!
