It’s like there’s always been a space in the mix for a fiddle player and now we have a great one. Check out our upcoming dates to catch him in action. Tims Face Book page here

Leicestershire’s finest seasonal Roots Music revue ‘The Sunday Saloon’ returns to Quorn in May with another stellar line up of talent. Headlining the show will be touring US duo Allison Williams and Chance McCoy. The pair were last seen in the UK as part of the BBC’s Folk America show at London’s Barbican Centre hosted by Seasick Steve – a performance which has now been broadcast many times on BBC4. Their appearance at The Sunday Saloon will be their only live date in the Midlands and one not to be missed.
The Saloon also boasts a special guest appearance by Peter Bruntnell, the Devon based singer-songwriter and mainstay of the UK Americana scene. Now promoting his 7th studio album Peter has recently finished a nationwide tour with Richmond Fontaine. Since his emergence back in 1998 Peter has gained plaudits from the likes of REM’s Peter Buck, Son Volt’s Jay Farrar and Richmond Fontaine’s Willy Vlautin making him the quintessential ‘songwriter’s songwriter’.
Support comes from Peterborough’s finest The Malingerers. Formed from the demise of The Surgens their take on original old-time country blues has been championed by Mark Lamarr who is currently providing regular Radio 2 airplay.
As ever, hosts for the Saloon are The Hi and Lo. Having been selected for the album ‘Divided by a Common Language’ – a collection of the best contemporary UK Americana, the duo have been name checked by Bob Harris and been chosen to open the main stage at this year’s Brampton Folk Festival, introduced by its patron Maddy Prior.
The Saloon takes place on May 23rd at Quorn Village Hall, 64 Leicester Rd, Quorn, nr. Loughborough, Leics, LE12 8BB. The show runs from 3pm until 7.30pm. Entry is £5 on the door. For further enquiries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
