The Wicked Tinkers

Prepare yourself for a wild ride with WICKED TINKERS! Pioneers of the growing Tribal Celtic movement, the Tinkers have been playing haunting, heart-pounding bagpipes and irresistible tribal drums as a professional touring band since 1995. With the addition, several years back, of the mesmerizing drone of the Australian didgeridoo and Bronze Age Irish horn, the magic was complete. Sit back and be transported to an earlier time in Scotland and Ireland, when battle cries filled the air and strange, unheard-of creatures roamed the night. Or better yet, get on your feet and let your body move to ancient rhythms and forgotten sounds.

Don’t think this is dry, dusty music for museum shelves – WICKED TINKERS merge the best of modern, almost rock-and-roll energy with the hypnotic, insistent grooves of their Gaelic ancestors. Rare is the bystander who comes away without feeling a surprising, sometimes bewildering connection to long-forgotten primal emotions … half-memories of ages past and experiences nameless yet somehow familiar. WICKED TINKERS creates music to set your jaw, put a fire in your belly, a glint in your eye and a dance in your feet.

In 1995, bagpiper Aaron Shaw met bass drum player Warren Casey at The Celtic Arts Center in Los Angeles, CA. Playing together, they discovered the simple beauty and power of the music created by these two instruments.

“The combination seemed to tap the very soul of Gaelic Music,” says Shaw.

This is the music you might have heard hundreds of years ago at a Scottish wedding celebration, or perhaps around the campfire of a Highland raiding party – a raw, exciting sound that touches you on a primal level. To express this feeling of the ancient within the modern world, WICKED TINKERS was born.

Over the years, the band has evolved. Keith Jones joined in on snare drum and hand percussion in 2000, followed by CJ Henderson on didgeridoo and the recently discovered Bronze-Age Irish Horn – a sound that was lost for over three thousand years. This strange and unlikely combination of instruments seems to access our deepest connection to a primal place that is both ancient and hauntingly familiar. It is the music of our Celtic ancestors, reimagined for the twenty-first century.

 

The Blue Sage

For Utah entertainment consideration:

The music of Blue Sage revolves around the repertoire of folk singer Mike Iverson. Widely regarded as one of the finest clawhammer style banjo players, Mike also plays guitar and mandolin with the band.

Playing bass fiddle with the band is Shauna Iverson whose driving technique powers the Blue Sage sound. Shauna’s personality shines through on stage and audiences find her as much fun to watch as to listen to!

Blue Sage features the “twin fiddles” of Rob Ricks and Heather Blaisdail. Rob is an incredibly gifted bluegrass fiddler while Heather draws from the Celtic and American fiddle tradition; the mix of the two styles is pure magic on stage. It’s our “twin fiddles” that allow us to occasionally include traditional Barnyard dancing as part of the Blue Sage experience or a well-known Cowboy poet.

Bebe Neuwirth

This intense, quirky, multi-talented actor-singer-dancer, who after achieving Broadway success (including a Tony) as a tough-talking dancer in the 1986 revival of “Sweet Charity”, enjoyed similar award-winning popularity for her deadpan portrayal of the brittle, astringent yet sexually smoldering Dr. Lilith Sternin-Crane on NBC’s long-running sitcom, “Cheers”. Bebe Neuwirth’s parents were a mathematician and an artist, which pretty much sums up her appeal: she seems to have a fiercely analytical approach to her acting. After schooling at Juilliard, she got her start touring in “A Chorus Line” (1978-81), playing various roles including the tough-talking Sheila and the more vulnerable Cassie, and on Broadway in such productions as “Little Me” and Bob Fosse’s “Dancin'” (both 1982), “The Road to Hollywood” (1984) and “Just So” (1985) before hitting the big time (and winning a Tony Award) in Fosse’s “Sweet Charity” (1986-87).

By this time, her sharp, dark beauty had brought her to the attention of Hollywood. Neuwirth began doing cameos as Frasier Crane’s repressed siren wife on “Cheers” (NBC). She continued as a semi-regular character through 1992, and has reprised the role from time to time on the spin-off “Frasier” (NBC, 1993-2004). Her other TV work has been spotty. Neuwirth had supporting roles in the 1990 dramas “Without Her Consent” (NBC), as famed attorney Gloria Allred, and “Unspeakable Acts” (ABC). She also appeared on the short-lived dark fantasy series “Wild Palms” (ABC, 1993). “Dear Diary”, a failed ABC sitcom pilot in which Neuwirth portrayed an editor and diarist, was released in 1996 as a short film and won an Oscar as Best Short Subject.

Neuwirth has appeared in a handful of films, few of which have exploited her peculiar, dry talents. She debuted as a guidance counselor in “Say Anything” (1989) and had supporting roles in “Green Card” (1990), as Andie MacDowell’s best friend, and in “Bugsy” (1991), as the real-life socialite Countess di Frasso. In the effective thriller “Malice” (1993), Neuwirth was the detective trailing Alec Baldwin while in “Jumanji” (1995), she was the aunt of the children who begin playing a mysterious board game. She had perhaps her best role to date in a distinct change of pace as a sexy yuppie in “The Associate” (1996). Additionally, she has also loaned her talents to the kiddie films “All Dogs Go to Heaven 2” (as a voice-over) and “The Adventures of Pinocchio” (both 1996).

But it is onstage that Neuwirth has always been happiest and most effectively utilized. Her combined skills as actor, dancer and singer have been seen in the musical revue “Showing Off” (New York, 1989), as Lola in the 1994 revival of “Damn Yankees” and in the 1996 revival of “Chicago” on Broadway. In the latter, her portrayal of celebrity murderess Velma Kelly (originated by Chita Rivera in 1975) earned her rave reviews and she all but overshadowed co-stars Ann Reinking, James Naughton and Joel Gray. Neuwirth picked up a second Tony Award for her efforts.

Neuwirth had memorable roles in several feature films over the next five years, including playing a hooker in Woody Allen’s film “Celebrity” (1998). Neuwirth had leading roles in two well-received television movies as well, 1999’s “Dash and Lilly” and 2000’s “Cupid & Cate.”

The actress continued to foray back to the small screen, with a recurring role on the short-lived cabbie drama “Hack” (CBS, 2003), an especially amusing stint playing herself on a 2004 episode of “Will & Grace,” and her eventual return to regular series work playing assistant district attorney Tracey Kibre in yet another spin-off of NBC’s legal crime drama franchise, “Law & Order: Trail By Jury” (2005 – ), just to name a few.

 

What they are saying about “Bebe”:

Send in the cheers with Bebe Neuwirth

Posted by Lynn Woods on February 28, 2012 in Events, Music, Stage · 0 Comments

Bebe Neuwirth’s performance at the Bardavon on Saturday, March 3 is being billed as “Bebe Neuwirth in Songs with Piano.” But the Tony and Emmy Award-winning singer, dancer and actor – she recently starred as Morticia in The Addams Family on Broadway and played Lilith in Cheers and Frasier on TV – characterized the songs that she will be singing as much more than a nice collection of tunes. “They cover a range of different situations in people’s lives,” she said in a recent phone interview. “They’re very rich and deep and contain a great depth of emotion, which could be elation and joy, or heartbreak, or nostalgia and longing. In all of them, the lyrics enhance the music and vice versa.”

Neuwirth added that she doesn’t so much sing the songs as inhabit them: “They really take me with them. This won’t be some girl standing on the stage at a microphone.” She will be accompanied by Scott Cady on the piano; she refers to him as her “musical partner,” given his accomplished artistry. The selection will be wide-ranging, from Edith Piaf to Kurt Weill to Tom Waits to Stephen Sondheim. The Weill songs in particular might surprise people who associate the German songsmith with a certain hard edge: “I find them soulful and romantic and lyrical,” commented Neuwirth.

She first launched her “Songs with Piano” show four years ago – it has been brought back to the stage, with a fresh selection, after a long hiatus – and has performed it in a variety of venues, from a little boîte to a 2,000-seat theater. There really is no difference, when it comes to the emotional intensity of her performance: “These songs can inhabit all these venues.”

Neuwirth also just released her first solo album, Bebe Neuwirth Porcelain, a title that hints at the dichotomy of fragility and strength exemplified by many of the songs. The album will for sale at the Bardavon. The New York-based performer has also been busy with other projects: She just finished shooting an episode for The Good Wife, and next week she starts rehearsals for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in a production by the Classic Stage Company, in the East Village. The play will premiere at the end of March.

Neuwirth has performed in numerous Broadway shows, including Chicago – for which she won three awards, including a Tony – Sweet Charity, Fosse, Damn Yankees and A Chorus Line. She is an honorary Ziegfeld Girl who has also played the lead in many regional theater productions and appeared in Liberty Heights, Summer of Sam, Bugsy and other films. She was nominated for an Emmy for her portrayal of Dorothy Parker in the television film Dash and Lily, and had guest appearances on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Does she have a favorite role? “You always have to fall in love with every job you do, or convince yourself that you are, because it’s not fair to the audience otherwise,” she said. “In some roles I find aspects of myself; some are nothing like me; and some are like me in a way the audience isn’t aware of.” What about Morticia? “There’s nothing of myself in her, although there are things in her I aspire to. She has an elegance and a great calm and composure. I’ve had moments of elegance.”

The Company Men

timthumbShawn, Daniel, Brian, and Stuart were all working their 9-to-5 jobs, putting in long hours to support themselves and their families:

  • – Shawn worked for “the mouse,”
  • – Daniel juggled website construction with being a stay-at-home dad,
  • – Brian worked for his family’s executive search firm, and
  • – Stuart was serving in the U.S. Coast Guard.

Fast forward to a Las Vegas casino in April, 2011, where the four found themselves discussing their individual dreams and goals.  Call it fate, call it a lapse in judgement, but all 4 guys decided together to take a risk: to move away from the security of the 9-to-5 job and start the COMPANY MEN.

“Modern Gentlemen”

In addition to a deep love and respect for yesterday’s music, they also wanted to bring back what it means to be “a gentleman.” It’s more than just being polite:

  • – A gentleman opens the door for others.
  • – A gentleman stands when a woman returns to the table.
  • – A gentleman displays chivalry and respect to all.

Their history creates a deep appreciation for each and every opportunity to perform. Each concert is one step further away from that 9-to-5 job, and another step closer to a career like those of their musical influences.
