A unique talent, Tim Edey 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 fine 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.
Tim has worked with a wide range of artists including the Chieftains, Christy Moore, Mary Black, Paul Brady, Sharon Shannon, Séamus Begley, Frankie Gavin, Altan, Ry Cooder, Eddi Reader, Julie Fowlis, Shane McGowan, Michael McGoldrick, Liam Ó Maonlaí, Mike Harding and many more. He has made frequent appearances on television and radio shows.
Tim’s popular online show which was broadcast on Facebook Live throughout the lockdown returns for a one-off Saturday night special.
