Boyd Tinsley, best known as the longtime violin/mandolin player for the Dave Matthews Band, is a seriously talented individual. Already recognized as a special talent on violin in his early teens, Tinsley also writes solo music (some focused on his instruments, some not), does some singing, and has even dabbled in writing short films.
Looking for something new, he has started Crystal Garden, a pop-rock band that features Tinsley in multiple ways, without necessarily being all about him. The band just released its first album, Let The Rocks Cry Out, back in March.
We’d recommend Crystal Garden’s SA show for fans of Dave Matthews Band and anyone who like to witness live violin shreddage in person.
