This summer, we are performing at Beaver Creek Plaza every Friday and Saturday afternoon through September.
Q: What’s your dream venue (in the valley or otherwise)?

A: We are big fans of folk and songwriting greats like John Prine, Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Lennon and McCartney, Jim Croce, Allison Krause, Gillian Welch, Paul Simon — it’s a big list. The local music scene here in the Vail Valley hosts some amazing musicians and bands that we have had the pleasure of joining on stage.
Q: How does the Vail Valley music scene compare to other places you’ve played?
A: Thanks to the Vail Valley Foundation, our production professionals and the attraction of Vail/ Beaver Creek as a world-class resort, this valley attracts top musical talent who visit and keep coming back. It’s cool to know that you’ve performed on the same stages as Bob Dylan, Dickie Betts, Warren Haynes and Bob Weir.
Q: What can the crowd expect from one of your performances?
A: Our audience can expect a different vibe from the carefully chosen classic songs and beautiful voices.
Q: Where can readers see a list of your upcoming shows?
Q: Anything else we should have asked, anything else you’d like to share?
A: Kristine Bullock majored in music at Bucknell University, and serendipitously ran into Tim at his solo show in her neighborhood. He invited her on stage to sing “Angel from Montgomery,” and the rest is history. “Being able to share my love of music again has been such a joy, and collaborating with Tim on new, fresh ways to interpret classic songs has certainly helped to fulfill my creative spirit,” Kristine said.
