“Timeless and minimalistic” – NW Gutersloh
“Dynamite duo!” – Gutersloher Volkszeitung
“Beautiful folk fireworks” – Die Glocke
Tinderbox have had a busy summer season; performing at superb festivals including Ireby, Milton Keynes International, Wickham, Cornwall Folk and Foxstock.
The duo recently arrived back from Germany after a hugely successful show at the ‘Woche Der Kleinen Kunste’ festival in Gutersloh where they shared the bill with Joan Armatrading. Joined onstage by Bob Burke (guitar/vocals) and Micky Tucker (Cajón) the evening was electric with an attentive 3,500+ audience.
The press reviews and feedback have been awesome and a German/European tour is being planned for 2013.
