Tim Edey at Edinburgh FC / EFC
Scots Trad Awards, 'Musician of the Year (2020)', Tim Edey is a unique talent. There is no-one who has seen Tim playing anywhere in the world doubting that. He's established this fact time and again over the past 20 years or so of touring and continues to do so.
So what does that mean in practical terms, what he can actually do? Tim plays a variety of instruments to an astonishing level of competence - in fact to put it like is really selling him far short of his musical expertise. Plus he has a photographic memory for recalling music. His mind is best described as a musical super computer linked to a remarkable sensitivity and empathy. He plays guitar, accordion, banjo, piano/keyboards, ukulele, mandolin, bass guitar, bouzouki and whistles - all to concert standard! In addition to that the musical genres he straddles range from classical to classic pop via swing, gypsy jazz, world music, classic jazz, country (including flat picking blue grass) and all folk styles. In addition to all this Tim has a good singing voice.
To paraphrase the above, Tim is a highly entertaining musical genius added to which he has an uncanny knack of making audiences laugh he is a natural presenter and raconteur. Tim has made frequent appearances on television and radio.
Artists Tim has worked with include the Chieftains, Christy Moore, Mary Black, Paul Brady, Sharon Shannon, Shane McGowan, Séamus Begley, Frankie Gavin, Altan, Ry Cooder, Eddi Reader, Steve Cooney, Julie Fowlis, Dougie Maclean, Capercaillie, Michael McGoldrick, Liam Ó Maonlaí, Ewan Vernal, Natalie MacMaster, Mike Harding and many more.
