Who We Are

Tinkers Lane are a five-piece band playing the original songs of frontman Ian Roberts. The music ranges from intimate love songs to melodic upbeat summer tunes that will have you dancing and dreaming of a better world. Catchy tunes combine with perceptive, poetic lyrics underpinned by a yearning for love and social justice. A Tinkers Lane gig is a journey across genres, spanning rock'n'roll, country, reggae, latin and rockney, always with a happy, uplifting sound that is uniquely their own.

The band has played at festivals and venues including:

  • supporting Martin Stephenson and the Daintees at 229 The Venue
  • the Levellers' Beautiful Days festival
  • the Dublin Castle in Camden
  • the Half Moon in Putney
