A unique talent, Tim plays a variety of instruments to an astonishing level. He has a ‘phonographic’ memory in recalling music. His mind is best described as a ’musical super computer’ linked to remarkable sensitivity and empathy. He plays guitar, accordion, banjo, piano/keyboards, ukulele, mandolin, bass guitar, bouzouki and whistles to concert standard. In addition to this he has a superb singing voice. His genres range between classical, classic pop, swing, gypsy jazz, world music, classic jazz, country (including flat picking blue grass) and all folk styles. Tim is a highly entertaining musical genius with an uncanny knack of making audiences laugh – he is a natural presenter and raconteur.
Artists Tim has worked with include: The Chieftains, Dougie Maclean, Christy Moore, Eddi Reader, Shane McGowan, Ry Cooder, Paul Brady, Sharon Shannon, Julie Fowlis, Capercaillie, Michael McGoldrick, Clive Carrol, Liam O’Maonlai (Hothouse Flowers), Ewan Vernal (Deacon Blue), Mary Black, Natalie MacMaster, Altan, Brendan Power, Mike Harding, Seamus Begley and Frankie Gavin – and many more. Tim has appeared on ‘Later with Jools Holland’ plus many other International TV and Radio shows.
