WELCOME IN THE MAYTIME NEWS

Live Shows Coming Up
Tim will be performing at L’auberge Sans Frontières in Dégagnac, France; Vancouver’s Jericho Folk Club; Mission Folk Festival and Harmony Arts Festival over the next few weeks. Details of all the shows are here
Tim will be in the UK for several weeks soon. He says he’s on holiday and will be doing a lot of writing but, although no gigs are planned, we wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some live music to be made along the way.

The Cuckoo Gene Update

Tim’s ‘Sci-Fi Prog-Rock Epic’ recording project with Baltimore’s Andy Cooke, of Dataloaf fame, continues apace. Backing tracks are complete and studio time is booked for September 12-16thin Baltimore, MA, USA for Tim to record vocals.
You can find out about the fabulous Dataloaf and Andy’s other projects here.


Hither and Yon

Recording has almost been completed at Palace Studios in Vancouver BC for the new album entitled Hither and Yon. It’s a rather belated follow-up to the 2008 Eventually Brothers release All Over the Map. All of the lyrics are by Alan Millen, with melodies created by Brian Bouthillier, Iain Duncan, Raymond Kerr and Tim Readman. Once again Eventually Brother and multi-instrumentalist Craig McKerron is along for the ride with Bill Buckingham taking the helm. Soon you’ll be able to come along on the voyage too. The songs in no particular order are:

Absent Friend (Millen-Kerr-Readman)     
Home Again (Millen-Readman)
I’m Gonna Run (Millen-Bouthillier)
Kindred Spirits (Millen-Kerr)
Low Tide: Twilight (Millen-Kerr)
Renoir Rain (Millen-Kerr)
Simple Soul (Millen-Readman)
Song For Kate and Anthony (Millen-Readman)
That Song On The Radio (Millen-Bouthillier)
The Narrow Boats (Millen-Duncan)
