They are dedicated to performing a variety of musical styles in an acoustic setting. Their eclectic repertoire includes modern folk songs by American, Canadian, and Irish songwriters, the fiery breakdowns and songs of family and home found in both traditional and contemporary bluegrass settings, and centuries-old Celtic airs and dance tunes. All of this is peppered with a healthy dose of popular jazz standards, swing and western swing music, and a few classic country tunes thrown in to provide a program certain to be enjoyed by all.
Tim Higgins was born into a musical family and, after playing many instruments in many styles, embraced the fiddle while in college (where he studied computer science). Upon graduation, he played fiddle professionally but soon came to realize it affected his creativity and love of the music. After this, he worked in software engineering, received his commercial pilot’s license, and music became his avocation. He has performed throughout the United States and has judged many fiddle contests up and down the east coast, including the Happy Valley Fiddlers Convention!
