TIP JAR – FRIDAY 23RD AUGUST 2019
Tip Jar, coming from Neunen, Holland will be the first European band to appear at Town Hall Live. No doubt you will have seen their founding member Bart De Win playing with Matthews Southern Comfort or with Birds of Chicago. Performing as a trio, the line-up will be completed by Bart’s wife Arianne Knegt on ukulele and vocals and Baer Traa on guitar and vocals. Bart, himself, plays keyboards, guitar and sings.
The band operates in the Americana genre with country and jazz influences. Their music is inspired by their tours through the Texas Hill Country. Tip Jar’s new album ‘Onward’, their fourth, was recorded in Austin, Texas as was their third ‘Gemstone Road’. On it are Bart and Arianne’s musical friends from all over the world. It was produced by the legendary Walt Wilkins. They have made an intense, warm and sparkling album of eclectic songs with acoustic instruments and vocal harmonies. All songs are tasteful compositions. Arianne and Bart’s vocals blend beautifully together giving the songs an extra dimension.
The trio play regularly in Holland to sold out venues. Now they come to the UK for their first ever tour. As Bart says ‘As Tip Jar we keep on believing, loving and creating. Metaphorically, there is always a new train around the bend and it will keep rolling onward. Always.’
Support will come from the Snake Oil Charmers, a four piece band from Hull. With dobro, acoustic guitar, bass and drums in their line up the Charmers play an infectious fusion of fun and fabulous musicianship, playing a blend of blues, country and swing.
