Tim O'Brien

Red Knuckles

Had he never heard Bob Dylan, Tim O'Brien might never have taken up music. Forming the bluegrass band Hot Rize with Charles Sawtelle in 1978, the pair won several awards before splitting in 1990. Now solo, O'Brien won a Grammy in 2005 for his album Fiddler's Green.

cannot get any music playing on last fm. What do I need to do. Pressing play does nothing? Also amazed by so many listeners on this site!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed Tim's performance, great sense of humour too !

Saw Tim twice this year. Celtic Connections Glasgow & Paisley Arts Centre, the latter being the better gig due to it's intimate setting. Tim is great at picking the right songs to do, some classics like, House of the rising sun & Long black vale get well treated by him. He also said on his website that the best indian curry he ever has had was in Glasgow. Good reason to come back then, eh.

I note Tim O'Brien's doing a mandolin/fiddle workshop on Friday 1st August. Does anyone know what time this will start? Thanks, Tom
