Tim Hughes Bio

A few years ago, Tim decided it was now or never to learn to play acoustic blues guitar. Along the way he started to write his own songs and in 2023, at an age when most people are settling down to spend their pensions, he has released his debut album: "Bluesy Folk and Folky Blues", containing 12 compositions influenced by acoustic blues, folk and roots music. The CD, recorded in Nailsworth Gloucestershire, includes the "Five Valleys Trilogy", three songs inspired by the area around Stroud in Gloucestershire.  Tim also has a show "120 Years of the Blues" that has proved popular at festivals and in a new show: "Folk Blues, Yesterday and Today"  Tim talks about history  of the blues and the connections between American Blues and European Folk music. In the show he performs a mixture of traditional blues songs and new songs from his CD.

Tim also plays in G&T Blues with Grahame Newman.
