MMP presents for the first time at the Waggon at Hale, the multi-award winning instrutmentalist and composer, TIM EDEY (BBC Radio 2 FOLK MUSICIAN OF THE YEAR 2012) specially for ST PATRICKS DAY.

“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. One of the World's greatest Melodeon players” – Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2

“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 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, JP Cormier, Frankie Gavin, Sharon Shannon, Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy, Steve Cooney, Dermot Byrne, Altan, Stockton’s Wing, Capercaillie, Brendan Power, Kevin Burke, Michael McGoldrick, Seamus Begley, The Barra MacNeills, Shaun Davey, Session A9, Wolfstone, Lunasa, Vinnie Kilduff, Tony McManus, Mary Black, Session A9, Julie Fowlis, 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 now resides in Ireland, where he is based with his family and from where he regularly tours all over the world.

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.

“Stunning” ALED JONES, BBC RADIO 2

“I would say Tim Edee sits 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.
