Betsy Tinney, recipient of the 2012 Pegasus Award for Best Performer, is a Northwest cellist known both for her graceful musicality and her broad versatility. She has performed and recorded with many different groups, from solo acoustic performers to large rock bands; her contributions to each are unique and, as she explains, “whatever the song wants.” Betsy also performs solo, using a combination of acoustic cello and electronic looper that creates an interwoven tapestry of sound. Her solo cello work has been called “captivating,” “mesmerizing,” and “a rich texture for the ear, reminiscent of dark chocolate and fine red wine.”
Betsy has just finished her 2nd solo album, Wyverns in the Winery!
The digital album will be released in mid-September, and the physical CD should be available starting in late September at CD Baby and in person at shows.
The release concert for Wyverns in the Winery will be held on November 4, 2017 in Kenmore, WA. Watch this space for more details!
Video of the epic release concert for Release the Cello!, Betsy’s first solo album, is now available! You can buy the DVD (also includes code for video download) on Bandcamp. If you want just the video download, go to Gumroad instead.
