Thistle & Lace

Thistle & Lace is an eclectic, acoustic trio that combines spot-on harmonies with hits from the past 8 decades to bring you a one-of-a-kind listening experience. Husband and wife duo Jon and Ashley started the group in 2016 and added Bradley in 2018. Their fun and friendly banter, combined with audience interaction, make Thistle & Lace perfect for your next event! There may be an audience out there somewhere that can make it through a Thistle & Lace show without dancing, but we haven’t found it yet!  Big sound, spot on harmonies, and your favorite songs … Thistle & Lace will have you on your feet! The group is made up of a cappella veteran Jon McLemore (Street Corner Symphony), musical theater maven Ashley McLemore (a.k.a. “Jon’s boss”), and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Bradley McClendon. Their repertoire is as diverse as their members–there is something for everyone! Click here to see more.
