I started on the old upright piano and then, when I was six, Dad came back with a piano accordion so I didn’t actually play the button box until I was about 14.

“I had been playing a bit of whistle but where I lived in Kent there was no Irish music or branch of Comhaltas so I just learned from music in the house. There was always music playing in the house — The Chieftains, Joni Mitchell, Simon & Garfunkel… folk if you like.”

“Tim, now a name on the world stage in his own right after seventeen years of hard work, is rated by many to be one of the world’s finest ever Melodoen and Guitar players in the folk & contemporary scene today!”
