Subject: RE: BBC Folk Awards winners?
Tim Edy hails from Broadstairs a small town on the South coast of England where nothing much happens except a week long folk festival. He started when knee high playing piano accordian, moved onto melodeon, but despite our attempts to encourge his plying of English music, his main passion was for the Irish. He used to play a lot and be quite shy. Since then he's developed a lovely stage personality and proficiency in other instruments, and sings a bit. Met up with him again at the Sheltland festival last year where he had taken some youngsters under his wing.
Hope this potted bio is helpful.
