80 words: Tricky Pixie is an adventurous gypsy celtic folk rock trio, unleashed from the land of Fae. These wild and masterful performers are as much visual and interactive as instrumental, wielding vocal harmonies woven with guitar, violin, cello, mandolin, and several bodhran. They'll take you down the twilight roads with a ride through Celtic rock, haunting and bluesy a cappella numbers, sweetly sung circus lullabies and roaring tribal folk songs.

Basic Text:

Tricky Pixie is a fey fusion of three well-loved, whimsical talents who fearlessly tread the boards and the twilight roads alike, using a wealth of instruments to guide themselves and their listeners along, including all manner of strings, voices, and drums.

This wild, sexy, irreverent, and masterful trio mixes up a delirious blend of tunes for each unforgettable show. In any given performance, they may call forth shipfuls of pirates, dancing satyrs, gypsies in the wood, and all the benefits of a good Beltane fire, rounding out the night with a spicy alligator tango, but you never know quite what you'll get. All three members of Tricky Pixie are prolific songwriters, and together they have a vast musical catalog of original tunes -- a collective discography of 14 albums are currently available. Since their first official show in July 2007, they have released one album together, and a performance DVD is on the way.

S.J. Tucker, Alexander James Adams, and Betsy Tinney are vibrant and animated entertainers, so a Tricky Pixie performance is as much visual and interactive as instrumental and vocal. Between tunes, SJ and Alec exchange banter, tell stories, and draw the audience into their fantastic world -- it's a ride through Celtic rock, haunting and bluesy a cappella numbers, sweetly sung circus lullabies and roaring tribal folk songs. SJ, Alec, and Betsy weave contagious faery magic, and you're bound to be caught in their spell when you attend a Tricky Pixie concert.

Tricky Pixie has been performing to regular sold-out and standing-room only shows in the Pacific Northwest since their inception. Fans of SJ Tucker, AJ Adams, and Betsy Tinney around the country and around the globe have been clamoring for a chance to catch Tricky Pixie show for themselves. Many devotees have driven over a hundred miles just to catch a single performance.
