Tim Edey & Brendan Power

Voted ‘Best Duo in the 2012 BBC Folk Awards, Tim Edey and Brendan Power’s powerful blend of passion and virtuosity is infectious.  What sets them apart from most folk/Celtic acts is their free-wheeling approach to live performance.  Tim and Brendan love to improvise, which means that every time they do a piece it sounds different & fresh.  Tim Edey (who also won ‘Musician of the Year’ at the awards) is one of the finest multi-instrumental players of his generation in the worldwide Celtic music scene.  A virtuoso on both acoustic guitar and button accordion, Tim’s incredible musical ear and total technical command allow him to play the most demanding instrumentals and improvise freely in any style you throw at him.  UK-based Kiwi harmonica player and composer, Brendan Power, is widely acknowledged as one of the most versatile and creative harp players around today.  Voted International Harmonica Player of the Year 2011, he has recorded with the likes of Kate Bush, Sting, Van Morrison, Paul Young, James Galway, John Williams, Paul Brady, Altan, and Artie McGlynn.  A fluent improviser in jazz/blues/pop styles, Brendan is also an expert player of Irish traditional music, winning the All Ireland title in 1994.  He sings and composes original songs, and often throws in some nifty beatboxing too.

“Two blokes at the top of their mark: one of the world’s best melodeon players and one of the world’s best mouth organ players.  An album absolutely chock full of totally brilliant music.  I tell you, get it! It’s brilliant!” (Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2, on ‘Wriggle & Writhe’)
