"Canada's cinematic songwriter." 
The Boston Globe
In the story of Canada's folk music festivals, Tim was there at the very beginning and he's still there now. While founding one of Canada's major festivals and helping to nurture several others, he has continued to write and perform his exquisitely crafted music at venues across the country. Here's Tim's story  of how roots music rolled across the country to become a major force in our culture. It's a wonderful journey and we couldn't ask for a better guide than Tim Harrison.
David Essig

As creator and curator of seminal folk festivals and events, and as a champion of great Canadian songwriters (and being one himself) Tim Harrison has left a lasting heartprint on the folk world.  His insights and memories will be a treasure for any lover of Canadian Folk Music.

My ninth album, Backporch Confidential, just released!
12 new songs all available at
and on iTunes, Amazon, Tidal etc.
This has been a real labour of love, and while initially it was supposed to be a vocal and guitar album, mandolins and banjos snuck in along with backup vocals by my partner Carol Edwards and drums on the track below which featured my old friend Rodger Tippin on the kit...acoustic guitar and for me!
Really hoping you will check this out (it's hassle free to listen through whole songs on Bandcamp before deciding to purchase) and that you will enjoy it when you do!
In the meantime have a listen to my tribute to the Rocket Radio and to "The Big 8" CKLW radio which I listened to as a young teen.
