"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.

"Backporch Confidential" follows the muse, not the script, that same creative path which Tim took as Artistic Director and founder of several folk music festivals and events.
