Tim O'Brien Trio

Years at Winfield: 

In Tim O’Brien’s music, things come together. The uncanny intersection of traditional and contemporary elements in his songwriting, his tireless dedication to a vast and still-expanding array of instruments, and his ongoing commitment to place himself in as many unique and challenging musical scenarios as possible has made him a key figure in today[‘s thriving roots music scene, and well beyond it.

O’Brien’s presence, be it as a bandleader, songwriter, mentor, instrumentalist, or vocalist, has been strongly felt not only in his own rich music, but in the many recordings of his songs by such artists as the Dixie Chicks, Garth Brooks, Kathy Mattea, New Grass Revival and Seldom Scene, and in his recorded collaborations with Steve Martin, the Chieftains, and innumerable others.

Appearing with Tim this year is Jan Fabricius with her wonderful voice and premier acoustic guitarist, David Greer.
