Tim Graham and Rose Lippard

Tim Graham and Rose Lippard perform traditional British songs sourced from both text and their favourite recordings. Having met each other through a mutual friend who thought they might get along, Tim and Rose have been sharing music for the last three years and are now starting to perform together with a mutual respect for each other’s talents and a love of the music they work with. Their track ‘Lankin’ was warmly received on the Leigh Folk Festival sampler CD this year “Rosemary Lippard & Tim Graham [deliver] a superlative account of the classic ballad Long Lankin … I could almost swear I was hearing an early Eliza Carthy.” (fatea-records.co.uk)

Rose’s vocals have gained comparison to Anne Briggs and she also has been collaborating with Steven Collins (Owl Service) on his new project Country Parish Songs, listen to a track from there début E.P here

The magical calibre of Tim’s accomplished touch on the guitar and the natural simplicity of Rose’s archetypal ‘folk vocal’ is a rare and treasured combination” Folkwords.com

“overflow(ing) with power, poise and presence… I’ve not heard a better ‘live’ acoustic album in a long time” about the E.P ‘Tim Graham and Rachel Hall’ Folkwords

"Tim Graham understands the meaning of space and is not afraid to use it, which he does to glorious effect on Too Good To Burn. The song seems as built as much on anticipation and atmosphere as it does on vocal delivery and music and the overall effect is fantastic." - The Green Man
