Tricky Pixie is a fey fusion of three well-loved, whimsical talents: S.J. Tucker, Alexander James Adams, and Betsy Tinney. This team uses all manner of strings, drums and voices to produce gypsy celtic folk rock for naughty punk faeries.

Together, these musicians form an adventurous gypsy celtic folk rock trio, unleashed from the land of Fae. These wild and masterful performers are raw entertainment.

Expect more than just music; they'll take you on a ride down the twilight roads of Fae. All three members of Tricky Pixie are prolific songwriters, and together they have a vast musical catalog of original tunes - a collective discography of 17 currently available albums. Since their first official show in July 2007, they have released one album together.

Betsy Tinney

S.J. Tucker, Alexander James Adams, and Betsy Tinney are each 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.

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.
