After graduation from Newark in 2012, Tim spent 3 years as repairer for Evans Pughe Strings of Hitchin (sadly no longer in business) and a further 4 years as strings specialist with Cambridge Pianoforte.
Tim is an accomplished English folk fiddle player and regularly performs as a member of the highly acclaimed ceilidh band Frog on a Bike at functions and festivals up and down the country. This is one of very few ceilidh bands to feature a Hardanger Fiddle amoungst it's instrumentation. In addtion to this, Tim is also a Morris dancer and main musician for Cambridge based Cotswold side Granta Blue Morris. As such, he understands the needs of the folk musician and what they like in an instrument.
