Tricky Pixie is an amazing Faerie trio that came to be because of Faerieworlds. S.J. Tucker (guitar/vocals), Alexander James Adams (fiddle/mandolin/bodhran), and Betsy Tinney (cello/bodhran) formed their musical triad at Faerieworlds 2006. On July 31st, 2009 they took the main stage with mesmerizing bouncy and trickster beats to coincide with the release of their first studio album “Mythcreants”. Billed as “Gypsy Celtic Folk Rock for Naughty Punk Faeries” they fully live up to their name and embodie that spirit in stage presence, music, lyrics, and ambience. These three mischievious pixies mesh together various instruments of strings and drums with enchanting festive lyrics and voice. Amazing songwriters who create their own stuff, they also bring out the classics of original tunes. While a pretty new Faerie band … their first official show was in Redmond, Washington (July 2007) and they’ve been stomping the stages with some fantastical beats with an animated performance throughout the Pacific Northwest. Definitely some top talent to keep an eye on as spin out their Faerie melodies. I enjoyed the Saturday performance for some reason better than yesterday’s … perhaps because the Faerie spirit was definitely flowing by this time at the festival. Amazing band! Kudos!
