Born in the lakes region of New Hampshire the Back-Yard Tire Fire offers a blend of rock, blues, country/folk feel good music.
Carroll Piper and Brian Ernest have been writing and playing music together for years. One August evening, these two career educators were sitting around the fire pit trading original songs. After a little while some one stood up and said “This is good stuff! We can call ourselves the Back-Yard Tire Fire and perhaps make dozens of dollars.” And the name stuck.
Since that eventful day, Piper and Ernie have taken the Back Yard Tire Fire to North Conway, the Lakes Region, and most recently, the New Hampshire Seacoast. They have opened for The Bruce Marshal Group, Dave Gerard and Truffle and many others. Their blend of original R&B, folk and just plain feel good music have made them local favorites.
The dynamic duo of Piper and Ernie continue to write and play original music to the delight of their fans. These two educators are living the dream as they blend blues, rock, folk with an original twist.
