About Tim Higgins

Tim is a multi-genre guitar player, composer & music therapist based in the North of England. Classically trained, his previous work spans every style of music imaginable.

His guitar playing has taken him across the UK & Europe, alongside everyone from accompanying emerging singer songwriters & supporting established rock & indie bands on tour, to playing with the most popular Latin music acts in the UK.

Since qualifying as a music therapist in 2017, Tim has been providing a psychodynamic therapy service in a range of settings across Cumbria. His current focus is on children & young people, including those with special educational needs and those in the residential care for complex emotional needs.

This blog will chronicle Tim’s experiences as a professional musician & working therapist, gear reviews, equipment updates and musings on the wider nature of music & art. There will also be regular updates on upcoming projects, including his in-progress collection of solo guitar study pieces, entitled ‘Classical Crossover’.

Tim also composes one-off commissions for specific projects, as well as various independent sound pieces and minimalist compositions. Some of these are available to listen to online. Visit Tim’s Vimeo page here.

    I want to drop a note that I thoroughly enjoy Toward the Road. It has shades of Fripp, Eno, and Andy Summers. I do not mean to try to put you in that box, or a box. It is just beautiful.

    Hello Tim! Thanks for the like on my post – the Joe Bonamassa rendition of Bird on a Wire.
    You sound exactly like the Brit counterpart of a fellow I know here in Montreal… Craig Morrison. He is a performer and has a PhD (no less! :-D) in ethnomusicology (which apparently is such an obscure specialty, that this built-in spellchecker doesn’t recognize it as a bona fide word, haha), and also gives courses in the Blues, Beatles, all sorts of Rock and roots music and permutations thereof, just like you. So on the off-chance you’d like to meet your Canuck counterpart, his website is at http://craigmorrison.com/. Bye now!
