Rowan joins the Carolina Chocolate Drops!

Posted on

I’m sure you’ve all heard by now, but our very own Rowan Corbett, as of January 1st 2014, is an official member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops! Go to their webpage and you’ll see his beautiful face up there: http://www.carolinachocolatedrops.com/ For those of you who are wondering, Tinsmith is still on his agenda – we are in the back seat but not gone! Tinsmith will continue to play as we can fit gigs in around the CCD schedule (I love going to their concerts too!), so don’t worry that you won’t ever see us again. For those of you who have not heard CCD – go to a concert! They are just fabulous and a lot of fun live, made even better, in our humble opinion, by the addition of Rowan Corbett!

Happy New Year!

Posted on

Well here we are in the new year, and let’s all hope for better and better times ahead! It’s snowing quite hard here in rural Virginia as I type which I like a lot – I’m a big fan of winters and it’s been several years since we really had one so this is great…bring it on! We have some fun gigs coming up early in the year so check out the schedule and come see us.

We’re all social ‘n’ stuff!

We’ll follow you back, plus, we’ll keep you up to date on upcoming shows and other Tinsmith news. Also, we’ll keep the links to video of skateboarding dogs to a minimum… The Tinsmith Gang

Tinsmith at Potomac Celtic Festival this weekend!

Posted on

This weekend will be the 16th annual Potomac Celtic Festival and we’re very happy to be there once again. This year, the Festival has gone back to two days. Which is great for us, ’cause we get to play more. They’re also giving us two shows on each day, which is cool, ’cause you get to see us more. But I’m sure you realize that there will be many other performers at Potomac this years that you’re not gonna want to miss. For instance, a group that is interwined with the very roots of the festival, Iona, will be back this year. And one of our very favorite people in the world, Bruce Molsky, will also be bringing a touch of Appalachia to the show. Hopefully, he won’t find our constant attention too stalky… Anyway, it’s gonna be an awesome weekend. We’d hate you to miss out… 6.13.09 & 06.14.09 @ 10:00am 16th Annual Potomac Celtic Festival Morven Park Historic Green and Mansion 17263 Southern Planter Lane Leesburg, VA 20176 866.771.7786 Price: At the Gate: Adult = $15; Seniors= $12; Child (6-12) = $7 In Advance: Adult = $12; Seniors= $10; Child = $6.

Tinsmith @ the Montpelier Folk & Blue Series

Posted on

Hello All, This Friday night, we’re playing the Folk & Blues Series at the Montpelier Arts Center in Laurel, MD. Not only is this a wonderful place to see a show, it’s a great place to see amazing visual arts, meet local artisans, take classes, and learn about local history. Plus we’ll be there… that’s pretty good too, right? Anyway, we’d love it if you’d come out and see us play. Montpelier has had a lot of really awe-inspiring performers grace it’s stage and we’re quite proud to soon follow in such great footsteps. Cheers!

We’re Back!

Posted on

Well our sabbatical year was nice and restful and we’re back in full force! Lots of good shows coming up this spring (and we hope to see you all the the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival the first weekend in May – we are usually all there, though not playing). First up is a great little Celtic Festival in Frederick Md with Maggie Sansone, and then we are lucky enough to be playing at beautiful Montpelier Arts Center in May. Back to the Washington Folk Festival this year too – a venerable and wonderful show, as well as our happy favorite, the Potomac Celtic Festival. See the Schedule page for details about all these gigs!

Potomac Celtic Festival

Here it is, almost summer again! We will be playing at the Potomac Celtic Festival again and I have already messed up our times in the email I sent out…we are playing at 10am and at 3pm (not 4pm which is what I think I wrote in the email) Also, we’ve got a great house concert and jam coming up in Maryland the day after PCF- check out our schedule page for details!

New Deal Show Canceled

Posted on

So we (Brooke & Rowan) were planning to have a low key show at the New Deal Cafe tonight. Sadly, though, we’ve been informed that the Cafe will be closed for the next few weeks due to renovations. Since we like you, we thought we’d let you know so that you didn’t show up to a very closed venue and thus, be a bit cross with us. Anyway, we’ll keep you posted, but we’re unsure when the New Deal will be open again. If we get a make up date, either at the New Deal or elsewhere, we’ll post it here and send out an email. Thanks and sorry about that…. The Tinsmith Gang
