Timothy Hull’s Garden ~ By Rose Woods.
Listening to Timothy Hull perform is akin to weeding in the garden. There is something transcendent and deeply satisfying in clearing room for things to grow in the dirt. When Timothy is singing he clears the air around him with a seemingly effortless musical dexterity and a purity of voice that lifts the listeners to another place. He is at turns intimate, vulnerable, hilarious, whispering, howling, glorious. An audience follows along, musical dirt under the nails, and it is impossible to leave his performance unchanged in some elemental way. Timothy performed February 12 at the Whidbey Children’s Theatre. He arrived sick, snorffly and with his quiet sense of humor. While he was clearly not feeling well, there was no need for concern in terms of the performance. He carved his musical sculpture into the space with his usual story-telling anecdotes and lyrics and simply played into that moment, within that immediacy. It was a quiet, dreamy and evocative night of songs with touches of something wild that cut through the air. The audience was delighted to be included in his journey.
Timothy Hull and Margot Merah ~
American singer and songwriter Timothy Hull and Amsterdam based Margot Merah met even before they’d actually met. Timothy’s songs had travelled across the Atlantic making it to the backroom session in Mulligans Irish Bar Amsterdam where Margot had heard them. And Margot’s album Daughters, with her duo The Lasses, had made it into Timothy’s house. So when they stood face to face for the first time in the spring of 2015 to do a show, introductions weren’t really necessary. Both Timothy and Margot have a love for folk music, for songs that tell a story, for old as well as modern folk. As a duo they bring a variety of old songs and new ones, covers and originals, up tempo and ballads. Two voices that blend beautifully, strong but subtle guitars, harmonica and a shrutibox make for an atmospheric concert.
