A HUGE thank you to everyone who helped to organise the benefit concert for the Amelia-Grace Rainbow Fund at the Regent Centre in Christchuch on April 26th.
We’ve just launched the awesome tinderbox mobile app. Now you can now have our gigs, music, news and more at your fingertips on your smartphone or ipad wherever you are!
Over the next couple of months we’ll be taking a bit of a break from performing.
After an amazing (and very busy) year, with numerous live shows and the release of a new album, we’re ready to say a fond farewell to 2012.
The year’s highlights included capacity shows with the likes of Joan Armartrading and Eleanor McEvoy.
“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.
The new album ‘Counting Time’ was released on March 29th – 14 months in the making!
The original digipack CD (includes full lyrics and sleeve-note booklet) can be purchased directly through this website.
Alternatively you can download the full album or choose individual tracks via iTunes.
