Background:

Based in Mission Hills, string band Tinkersmith was founded by Jeff Smith (vocals, guitar, harmonica) and Sally Tinker (vocals, mandolin, percussion). They expanded to include Ira Moskowitz (percussion), Andy Robinson (dulcimer, harmonica, vocals), and Dan Steinman (bass). According to Robinson, "We do our own take on folky, rootsy songs by Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Steve Earle, Gillian Welch, Gram Parsons, Loudon Wainright III, David Rawlings, and others, plus originals."

They launched a residency at Nate’s Garden Grill in 2016.
