“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)

“Tim Edey plays a host of different instruments to a standard us mere mortals can only dream of. Listen and weep" (Living Tradition)”

Tim is now a name on the world stage in his own right after 17 years of very hard work and consequently is rated by many to be one of the world's finest ever melodeon and guitar players in folk and contemporary acoustic music today!
Originally from Broadstairs in Kent and of Irish descent, Tim honed his style of playing guitar by learning from his father Richard (a fine guitarist himself) and listening to the likes of Django Reinhardt, Ed Boyd and Steve Cooney. Tim's live solo shows are a stunning mix ranging through world music-inspired instrumental virtuosity and passion with a strong Celtic theme, to audience-chorus lines. Above all Tim does not deliver a dry-as-dust demonstration of virtuosity. Far from it and much, much more than that. He entertains throughout chatting informally to the audience while blowing them away with his sheer musicality in a highly entertaining night of tuneful genius.
"One of the world's greatest melodeon players" (Mike Harding BBC Radio 2)
"Stunning” (Aled Jones, BBC Radio 2)
"I would say Tim sits comfortably between Steve Cooney and Donal Lunny, yes he's that good" (www.folking.com)
