Originally from Broadstairs in Kent, Tim Edey – BBC R2 Folk Awards Musician Of The Year 2012 – multi-instrumentalist and singer is back in Kent for a gig at Gulbenkian.

Tim Edey – BBC R2 Folk Awards Musician Of The Year 2012 – multi-instrumentalist and singer, has toured the world and recorded with most of the major names in Celtic/Contemporary roots music including; The Chieftains, Christy Moore, Sharon Shannon, Natalie MacMaster, Altan, Capercaillie, Brendan Power, Michael McGoldrick, Seamus Begley, Dougie Maclean, The Barra MacNeills, JP Cormier, Shaun Davey, Session A9, Lunasa, Vinnie Kilduff, Mary Black, Session A9, Julie Fowlis, Frankie Gavin to name but a few…

Tim is now a name on the world stage in his own right after 17 years of very hard work and consequently is rated by many to be one of the world’s finest ever melodeon and guitar players in folk and contemporary acoustic music today!

Originally from Broadstairs in Kent and of Irish descent, Tim honed his style of playing guitar by learning from his father Richard (a fine guitarist himself) and listening to the likes of Django Reinhardt, Ed Boyd and Steve Cooney. Tim’s live solo shows are a stunning mix ranging through world music-inspired instrumental virtuosity and passion with a strong Celtic theme, to audience-chorus lines. Above all Tim does not deliver a dry-as-dust demonstration of virtuosity. Far from it and much, much more than that. He entertains throughout chatting informally to the audience while blowing them away with his sheer musicality in a highly entertaining night of tuneful genius.

Tim will be supported by Rudy Warman
Rudy with his family trio have been described as the ‘Vintage Sound of Southern England’. Blessed with an extraordinary voice that can express great power and great sensitivity Rudy will be performing solo tonight playing original grassroots folk and blues.

ART31

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them. The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.

ART31 is supported by a network of cultural partners across the county, a number of whom have been inspired to adopt the ART31 ethos, including Pie Factory Music, Jasmin Vardimon Company and partners leading the Theatre31 project in Medway and Sheppey.

The ART31 Youth Board have had great success with programming and co-commissioning, working with a wide range of practitioners from across the cultural and creative industries. They have developed the ART31 manifesto and have challenged policymakers and enabled change so that more young people across the county, from a range of diverse backgrounds, can experience high quality arts and culture.
