Bio

Hailing from Grey County, Tim Harrison's debut on the Canadian folk scene was the release of his album "Train Going East", produced by folk legend Stan Rogers and engineered by 5x Grammy winner Daniel Lanois (Bob Dylan, U2). He performed throughout Canada and the United States in the 1980s and 1990s, and was actively involved in promoting folk music during this time as a radio host, concert promoter and as artistic director of various festivals across the country (Summerfolk-founder, Mariposa, Northwinds, Eaglewood).

Since 1999, Tim has been working full-time on his own performing and recording, and great things are happening! His music has been published in the venerable Sing Out, and has garnered great praise throughout the pages of Folk Roots, Acoustic Guitar, Penguin Eggs, Dirty Linen and a host of other publications. He was also selected as a finalist for the USA Songwriting Competition (folk category), and his latest CD, "Grey County", enjoyed wide airplay, positioning Tim for 8 consecutive months in the top 10 of Canadians receiving airplay internationally in 2005 (folkdj-l). Tim is currently working on a new collection of songs due for release in the Fall.

Yet Tim's talent extends far beyond the recording studio and onto the stage itself as a consummate performer known for his compelling singing, stellar guitar-work and commanding stage presence. What's more is his delightful wit and an uncanny knack for storytelling which make him an audience favorite (click here for presenters' comments).

Enthusiastic response to his recordings and performances has led to tours across Canada, the United States and the UK, where Tim has performed everywhere from Toronto's Harbourfront Centre for the Performing Arts to Canso's Stan Rogers Folk Festival, from New York's Caffe Lena to Washington's Kennedy Center, and from England's Midland Arts Centre to Scotland's An Lanntair Arts Centre.
