FILGATE & THORNE
Peter Thorne has lived in the 100 Mile House area most his whole life, minus all the years that he spent on the road in his 20's and 30's traveling as a musician in many bands. Eventually he settled into cabinet making, but now in his spare time he is making hand-crafted "cigar box" guitars.
My name is Tammylynn Filgate. I've been singing and playing music as long as I can remember. The sound of country music has always caught my ear like Loretta Lynn, Pasty Cline, Patty Loveless and LeAnn Rimes – just to mention a few.
