Award winning contemporary folk trio Tinderbox were formed in 1997 by Dublin born singer-songwriter Monique Houraghan and guitarist-songwriter Dan Tucker. Since 2007, talented multi-instrumentalist and session musician Bob Burke has completed the dynamic trio line-up.

With five studio albums and one live album under their belts Tinderbox have amassed an impressive catalogue of self-penned music. Inspired by artists as diverse as James Taylor, Ane Brun, Jackson Browne and Counting Crows; the songs explore a myriad of themes from war and the environment to friendship and, of course, love.

BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson has described the music as “Gorgeous”. R2 Magazine’s Dai Jeffries branded the music “Outstanding [and] refreshingly natural” and Folkwords columnist Tim Carroll commended the “…highly accomplished musicianship with a deliciously pure voice and a lush embroidery of strings.”.

In addition to countless headline shows in the UK, Ireland and America Tinderbox have opened for high profile acts including Joan Armatrading, 10cc and Hazel O’Connor amongst many others.

With an established reputation amongst the UK folk and acoustic scene this is a perfect opportunity to experience Tinderbox live if you haven’t already. If you have then it’s a great chance to hear some brand new material as well as some timeless favourites.
