Tim Edey


“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” – Colin Irwin, fRoots


“Utterly fantastic. Sheer, wonderful ebullient music” – Mike Harding “Tim Edey plays a host of different instruments to a standard us mere mortals can only dream of. Listen and weep”- Jim Byrne, The Living Tradition


Tim Edey was voted BBC Radio Two’s Musician of the year 2012 (BBC R2 FOLK AWARDS) and “Best duo” with Brendan Power. Tim is a multi-instrumentalist and singer and has toured the world and recorded with most of the major names in Celtic/Contemporary roots music including; The Chieftains, Dougie MacLean, Christy Moore, Sharon Shannon, Natalie MacMaster, Altan, Stockton’s Wing, Capercaillie, Brendan Power, Michael McGoldrick, Seamus Begley, The Barra MacNeills, JP Cormier, Shaun Davey, Session A9, Wolfstone, Lunasa, Vinnie Kilduff, Mary Black, Session A9, Julie Fowlis, Frankie Gavin to name but a few…


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!


Originally from Broadstairs in Kent and of Irish descent, Tim honed his style learning from his father Richard a fine guitarist and listening to Ed Boyd, Steve Cooney and Django Reinhardt. He has lived in Ireland and now resides in Perthshire, Scotland where he is based with his family and tours all over the world regularly from.


Tim’s live solo shows are a stunning mix of world music inspired instrumental virtuosity and passion with a strong Celtic theme, to audience – chorus lines and above all a highly entertaining night of musical genius.


“One of the world’s greatest melodeon players” MIKE HARDING BBC RADIO “Stunning” ALED JONES BBC RADIO TWO


“I would say Tim sit’s comfortably between Steve Cooney and Donal Lunny, yes he’s that good” PETE FYFE WWW.FOLKING.COM


Tim’s most recent tours and gigs have taken him over the Atlantic from Scotland to Canada & the U.S! Appearing Solo at Celtic Colours festival in Cape Breton, previously with Brendan Power and his own Tim Edey Collective.


He has freshly stepped off the tour bus from Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy’s show “Masters of the Fiddle!”
