BBC Radio 2 Folk Award ‘Musician of the Year’ winner, multi-instrumentalist and singer Tim Edey has toured the world and recorded with major names in celtic/contemporary roots music including; The Chieftains, Christy Moore, Sharon Shannon, Natalie MacMaster, Altan, Capercaillie, Brendan Power, Michael McGoldrick, Seamus Begley, and Dougie Maclean to name but a few.
Tim is now a name on the world stage in his own right after 17 years of hard work and consequently is rated by many to be one of the world's finest melodeon and guitar players in folk and contemporary acoustic music today. Originally from Broadstairs in Kent and of Irish descent, Tim honed his style of playing guitar by learning from his father Richard (a guitarist himself) and listening to the likes of Django Reinhardt, Ed Boyd and Steve Cooney.
Tim's live solo shows are a stunning mix ranging through world music-inspired instrumental virtuosity and passion with a strong Celtic theme, to audience-chorus lines. Tim entertains throughout, chatting informally to the audience while blowing them away with his sheer musicality in a highly entertaining night of tuneful genius.
'Tim Edey is brilliant - in every which way. As a guitarist, he has few peers. As a box player, he’s a magician. As a character, he’s off the scale.'
