"Performance is a real passion of mine. Whether I’m playing jazz at an intimate venue, or playing to a packed house in a beautiful theatre, I love every minute of it. If you are interested in working with me on a new project or are looking for a touring or recording guitar, lapsteel, mandolin or bass player please get in touch, I would love to hear from you." – Tim Bloomer
