Wicked Tinkers produces songs setting your jaw, place a fire within stomach, a glint inside attention and a dance inside foot.
The Tinkers tend to be: award-winning piper and frontman Aaron Shaw; the delightfully outrageous Keith Jones on percussion (and "hollerin"); CJ Henderson taking infectious enthusiam to the stage on didgeridoos and bronze-age horn and Tiki King, attracting us in together with his offbeat love of life between savagely thundering their bass drum. If you haven't identified by now that the Tinkers are loud...well, we are going to only say that you might not be the sharpest dart when you look at the board.
