The Gaslight Tinkers w/ guest Pluck & Rail

Gaslight TinkersAfrican, Caribbean, Funk, Reggae, and Latin grooves meet traditional fiddle music. It’s the genre-bending future of the music of the past. The Gaslight Tinkers‘ blend of global rhythms creates a joyously danceable sound around a core of traditional New England old time and celtic fiddle music, merging boundless positive energy with melody and song. Since its formation in 2012 the band has lit up the East Coast, the West Coast, and the Caribbean, headlining clubs, dances, and major festivals.

Playing what The Valley Advocate describes as “Music that consistently fizzes and pops with unexpected textures and turns,” The Gaslight Tinkers’ shows are packed with delightful surprises, elated crowds, and exuberant musicianship. The sound and energy of Audrey, Jopey, Garrett, and Peter are universally irresistible.

Pluck & RailPluck & Rail is the acoustic intersection of Andrew Sussman of the prog-rock heavyweights Frogg Café, and George Gierer of the folkabilly band South County. Drawing from the deep well of American music, Pluck & Rail blends together gritty songwriting, tight vocal melodies and soaring cello runs to craft their unique sound.
