About Tim

Singing guitarist
Classic acoustic covers in a relaxed, soulful style

I am a professional musician from Bournemouth working as a singer/guitarist, teacher, composer and band leader. I am available to book for live music venues and events as a singing guitarist playing in a relaxed, soulful style with a bluesy, jazzy vibe. I enjoy playing my own versions of classic songs from the 60's to present. I am an experienced performer having played all sorts of events across the UK and Europe and provide a friendly, fun and professional service.

Hi Tim. Thank you very much for such a great evening on Saturday. Everyone loved the music ….It was wonderful. Best wishes and thanks

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding reception last month – we had a perfect day, great weather, plenty to drink and eat, fantastic company and amazing music for the drinks reception. The two sets you provided was a good mix and spot on creating a lovely atmosphere – you came recommended and you certainly delivered.
