Award winning contemporary folk group, Tinderbox, are pleased to announce their first full Worthing show at St Paul’s on Friday 07 July, 2017.
Tinderbox were originally formed in 1997 by Dublin born singer-songwriter Monique Houraghan and guitarist/songwriter Dan Tucker. Since 2007, multi-instrumentalist and producer Bob Burke has completed the recognised trio line-up.
With six well-received albums to their name, Tinderbox have built up an impressive repertoire of self-penned songs which have received international recognition, exploring a myriad of poignant themes that range from watching children grow up, to the changing environment, and saying goodbye to loved ones to dancing in the rain!
Tinderbox’s live performances have been winning audiences over for the last twenty years with Houraghan’s emotive, personal delivery (often likened to Sandy Denny and Suzanne Vega) and the beautiful resultant countermelodies of interweaving guitars recalling the pastoral chamber-folk of Pentangle-era Jansch/Renbourne, Newton Faulkner, John Martyn and the Penguin Café Orchestra.
Their sixth album, 2017’s ‘All Grown Up’, with its extended sonic palette of piano, rhythm section, lead guitar (Frank Boyle), whistles (Catherine Burke), violin/viola and vocal arrangements (courtesy of Gareth Lee and Annie Bayliss), has received stunning reviews:
BBC 6 Music, Tom Robinson: ‘Gorgeous’
Maverick: ‘… a strong candidate for album of the year.’
R2, Dai Jeffries: ‘Outstanding… refreshingly natural’
Acoustic Magazine: 'Lovely, hooky, mellow’
FolkWords: ‘A five-star album – no question… highly accomplished musicianship; with a deliciously pure voice and a lush embroidery of strings.’
With a long-established reputation amongst the folk, country, roots, and acoustic music scenes, you should experience Tinderbox live if you haven’t already! The concert at St Paul’s in Worthing is a perfect opportunity to catch the Tinderbox trio up-close and personal (and will be one of the few occasions where piano is used within the live set).
