Tim Edey

It's hard to find something to say about our Patron every year, so I have shamelessly copied from Neil McFayden's review of  Tim's appearance at the 2016 Celtic Connections Festival:

Multi instrumentalist Tim Edey is a self-taught master of guitar and button accordion, one of the country’s most sought-after session musicians and one of the most popular entertainers in world-wide folk music. Having just returned to Scotland after a hugely successful tour of Ireland with Liam Ó Maonlaí and Kevin Burke, Tim was back on the Scottish stage at Celtic Connections to open the evening’s music at The Glasgow Art Club ahead of fiddle player Lauren MacColl.A rousing, stomping set finishing with The Foxhunter’s Reel brought the audience to their feet in appreciation – and no wonder, it’s one of the finest nights of music you could hope to enjoy anywhere.

It’s hard to tell what the main attraction is when you go to see Tim Edey perform. His guitar virtuosity is the stuff of legend, and his boisterousness on the box is beyond compare. What brings people back to see Tim perform time and again though (and one lady I spoke to had travelled from Lancashire for this one gig); is his warm, affable character. Whether the show is in a grand concert venue, a local hall or in the back room of a pub, Tim Edey’s live sets bring the most exquisite music and an evening of sheer delight to every member of the audience.
