Gigs and Tours

Welcome all. 2017 was another great year for Tim & Friends. They have really been busy. NEW Members joined the Band, Michael Kelliher (Accordion / Harmonica / Melodeon) & Tim Liebert (Vox / Mandolin/ Waldzither). Rosie Healy (Flute / Whistle / Vocal) is also a new member of Afro Trad Ireland. There are NEW songs and tunes in the Live Show.

The brand new long awaited studio CD “another skin too few” (their sixth CD), was recorded during 2016 and launched 25 February 2017 at the Gathering Festival. (See discography page). They launched their Studio 7 Track EP from “Afro Trad Ireland”, in Germany last autumn. There are NEW towns and venues on the German Tour 2017 and for the third time in 26 years they start the Autumn Tour in West Germany. In 2017, this is their 30th German Tour in 26 years. The CD "15 Times Around" is selling well and still getting good reviews. Thanks to all of you that supported them and came to the gigs. Even more events and recordings are being planned for 2017. Keep checking this site for updates. See you all again soon.
