Tim van Eyken is fast becoming one of the great hopes for the future of folk music, leading his generation with a modern and open-minded approach to traditional music. His first solo album released last year was received to great rapture and has been hailed as one of the most important folk albums within the last 20 years. Neil Spencer of The Observer say’s of van Eyken “A clarion call for tradition…... a triumph”. Tim has spent the last 5 years as a member of the royal family of folk Waterson:Carthy. However he has now gone solo forming his festival headlining band Van Eyken which is touring the country to sell out crowds.
Tim has kindly donated his evening to play in aid of the Live Wires Young persons music residential scheme for which he is a tutor and great supporter.
