Accordionist and Revels North Artistic Director, Alex Cummings introduced Revels to fiery fiddle player Audrey Knuth when they were both featured in the 2021 Christmas Revels. Audrey in turn introduced Revels to her band, The Gaslight Tinkers, who take traditional New England music to the outer limits supported by a driving mix of African, Reggae, Funk, Latin and Caribbean rhythms.
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. The Gaslight Tinkers put on shows packed with delightful surprises, elated crowds, and exuberant musicianship.
We promise you another exciting evening on the Revels Fringe!
