The Tinstars

Price: FREE

Sunday, August 5 and Monday, August 6 at 8 p.m.

The music of the Tinstars can be described as a very ecclectic mix of authentic rockabilly, white-rock, pre-surf instrumentals, blues and a bit of hillbilly. Their most important influences are the recordings made for the legendary Sun label (particularly the ones by Sonny Burgess, Jimmy Wages and Carl Perkins).

In the repertoire of the Tinstars you can find songs from thelikes of Junior Thompson, Carl Perkins, Narvel Felts, Larry Donn, Warren Smith, Roy Orbison, Dale Hawkins, The Berry Brothers, Billy Prager, but also some originals and some lesser known material.
