Very excited about a new collaboration with Garrett Sawyer, formerly of the reggae funk band the Alchemystics and the great fiddler Zoe Darrow. Afro beat, reggae, funk, fiddle tune jam band with a wall of percussion called Gaslight Tinkers. Check us out on Facebook.
Next event will be April 12 in Northampton.
The last four months have been filled with lots of work on a fun project. With help from the Symonds School community and a grant from the Putnam Foundation, I produced a CD entitled “Peace, Place”. It’s a compilation of original, traditional, and covered songs about peace, cooperation and sense of place in out school community. We recorded 320+ kids singing various songs in lots of styles. After all the recording, it still kills me to listen to their voices. The project will benefit my music program. Go HERE to check out how to order a cd and give to this project!
Zoe, Garrett, Dave, and I are moving along with the Tinkers. Fiddle tune, afro pop, raggae, funk jam. Be a part of the movement. Check out this link to our page www.thegaslighttinkers.com.
Here’s a bit of live stuff from a performance in Amherst, MA
This summer has brought the Gaslight Tinkers (you know, our afro-beat, caribbean, funk, celtic jam band) to the Iron Horse, the Green River Festival, Upper Valley Fest and many more to come. Soon we’ll be recording and upping the ante– we need your support. Believe it or not, being our friend on Facebook is the best thing you can do— FRIEND US!
