Folk/Roots: Studio 2 Session – Tim V. Smyth (1/5/2016)

Tim V. Smyth is the driving force behind Irish bands “Hidden Highways” and, lately,”The Sky At Night” and has been producing fine music for some time now. On a visit to Kilkenny for Roots 2016 he dropped in to Studio 2 for a chat and to play some of his music. His laid back style and dry wit belie a songwriter of great talent and ability and his new music (some of which we hear in Studio) bodes well for the future.

We hear lives versions of “To Love Is To Burn”, “Effra Road” and featuring his rare playing with a pick – a controversial moment right there – “The Slow Set Revival”…
