Tin Cup Serenade
tragic songs of hope

In these tumultuous times, we need Tin Cup Serenade’s tragic songs of hope more than ever.

Rolf Wilkinson writes the tunes, by and large, sings them and plays guitar, Larry Leight plays trombone and Safa Shokrai plays bass.

Nashville Music News glowingly reviewed their most recent album, using the phrase “exuberant melancholy” and that pretty well describes the tone of it.  They quote Rolf, who says “Every song on the album has a bit of pathos and a bit of sunshine. There’s no sadness without happiness, no comedy without tragedy. I like the complexity that results from conflicting emotion.”  The songs, says NMN. evoke a Tin Pan Alley melange of New Orleans Jazz, Calypso, Swing, Mariachi, ragtime, early Country, and traditional Cuban Music.
