Acoustic Guitar

In 1994 Tim Haycocks picked up his first guitar. 3 years later as he walked off-stage after his first gig, he knew that music was something that would always play a huge part in his life, dictating its very direction in many cases. One such occasion was in influencing his decision to study it for a further 3 years which subsequently led him to choose it as a full-time profession, gigging, teaching and recording. A prolific song-writer and veteran performer, he is able to recreate a huge repertoire of sounds and styles and has worked all over the UK with artists as diverse as The James Taylor Quarter to Skunk Anansie. The last 14 years have seen him work in many different capacities with function bands, new artists and established musicians alike. Be it as a singer, guitar-playing front man, solo artist, guitarist, session musician or backing vocalist he's just as comfortable in any role but he's most at home when he's on stage.

Acoustic “Versions” Set

For the ultimate way to create a friendly, relaxed atmosphere during your event, look no further. With a comprehensive repertoire of popular and un-intrusive material spanning decades and vaulting musical boundaries, the acoustic “versions” set will envelop your guests in a feeling of warmth and musical familiarity.

Tim plays well known songs by familiar artists, in a lively yet considerate fashion. Infused with subtlety and flair (as well as the odd twist!) the sing-a-long melodies, intertwined with consummately professional acoustic guitar are sure to have you and your guests humming along and leave a lasting impression (as well as a tune or two!) firmly in your mind.

With material by artists such as Damien Rice, Crowded House, James Morrison and Paul Weller beautifully re-worked and adapted specially for a solo acoustic guitarist/vocalist, the acoustic versions set is the perfect compromise of the well known and the unexpected.
