Thacher Schmid

Since he started performing in Milwaukee in 1994, Thacher Schmid has played or recorded with Children at Play, Recycled Future, Guido Quartet (members of Violent Femmes), Sammy Llanas of the BoDeans (Absinthe project), Moriarty, Les Lokey, Luis Diaz Quintet, Signal Drift, Willy Porter, Def Harmonic, the Wood Ticks, John Kruth, Natty Nation and many DJs. Maybe because he sings and plays violin, viola and mandolin or because he comes from a musical family (father Will is past president of Music Educators National Conference and chair of UWM Music Dept., mother Ann runs Milwaukee Folk Center), Thacher values diversity in music and loves playing with One Drum. Thacher is also a freelance writer.

Thacher currently resides in Portland, Oregon.
