    Great things are predicted for Michael, his first solo album ‘Shores of Amerikay’, recorded in just 3 days and bringing together the award-winning line-up of Katriona Gilmore, the Incredible Washboard Pete II, Geth Griffith and John Ellis was released in the summer of 2012 to rave reviews. You can read more about Michael, hear an interview for BBC Radio Devon, watch some YouTube clips and read what others are saying about him on his web-site: http://michaeljtinker.com.. "Michael is an experienced performer and has more recently supported award-winning artists such as Lucy Ward, Ewan McLennan and Ian Stephenson" (KAN). "...breathtaking..." Rachael Clegg (Sheffield Telegraph) "Folk tales for the 21st century beautifully produced and delivered by an incredibly talented group of people...led of course by Michael's pure vocals!" Judi Spiers (BBC Radio Devon) "Tinker’s Annabel Lee is a spectacularly enjoyable track, it’s slow and tranquil yet the additional vocals elevate the poem from the darkness which it is usually associated." Bright Young Folk Singers and musicians of all standards and styles are welcome to come along and do a short floor spot.
