Tinderbox aims to ignite a spark in young people – one which fills them with confidence, imagination and sense of possibility, and which enables people to achieve things they never thought possible. Our work helps break down barriers between people & communities, providing exciting opportunities to those who need them most, and supporting young people to build their confidence, skills, self-esteem, and professional experience.
We run a range of contemporary youth orchestras, arts productions, workshops & apprenticeship schemes, bringing together young people of different ages, backgrounds, cultures and abilities.
Tinderbox finds its way into interesting places and makes amazing things happen. Part of its magic comes from not quite knowing where it will take you, but thousands of young people could tell you about the spark it has ignited in them.

The Jellyman's Daughter is a Scottish duo featuring Emily Kelly (vocals, guitar, mandolin) and Graham Coe (vocals, cello). After making each other’s acquaintance in the inspiring setting of Edinburgh, Emily and Graham soon found an affinity in the way their voices combined and a new sound in the way they could combine cello and acoustic guitar or mandolin, with influences ranging from bluegrass to post-rock. Graham’s cello in particular added an unique element with his rhythmic, percussive and unconventional playing.
"The Jellyman's Daughter sound like they've come down from the same cold mountain as The Civil Wars or Grammy-winning duo Robert Plant and Alison Krauss... [Graham] can make his instrument as percussive as a drum, as grounded as a bass or as sweet as a fiddle... when Kelly and Coe sing together, their harmonies squeeze the heart." The Herald Scotland
Looks like a fantastic evening!
