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, and Folk on the Green in Stony Stratford - check recent gig history here.
