Crofters Bistro originally described Tim as..“ a purveyor of fine song”
With an eclectic musical repertoire ; from Scots, Irish, English, folk songs, ancient and modern, to American standards from the acoustic musicians of his generation. His voice is a sound baritone/tenor mix and his informative song introductions try to assist the listener into a fuller appreciation. He is ably accompanied in these Govan Sessions by Crofters owner Donal Boyle on fiddle and vocal harmony.
Love songs, war songs, songs of the sea, of loss and longing, songs of betrayal and faith, and not without humour too….look out for those acapella numbers.
Tim is perhaps better known as a Scottish visual artist. He is one of the leading carver/sculptors of his generation. His stone carvings are based on subjects as widely differing as seed heads/pods to archaeology and contemporary engineering. He lives and works on the Isle of Arran.
Like what you hear and want to support our artists and our music venue directly? Why not donate through the button on the left hand side?
Talented and bloody nice fella go Tim
It's been over a year since last I was in Crofters - well, it's four hours journey to get there now. This was the best hour I've spent for a while. Gaun yersel, Tim.
Great selection of songs and super singing and playing Tim & Dònal. Great sound and filming too. Thanks. Maggie F
My wife and I are on the west coast of the US, wishing we were back on Arran. Last night we were able to pour a couple of pints and imagine that we were back in Fiddler's, (though with better seats!) and that our Hood Canal was Firth of Clyde. Very nicely done!
Absolutely brilliant and highly recommended. Thanks Donal and Tim.
