Tim Jenkins, Balladeer: Bio

One of the Pacific Northwest's leading ballad singers, Tim Jenkins has been performing folk music for over forty years, from Washington to Texas, from New York to California, and from the Caribbean to England. He has a vast repertoire of mainly traditional folk songs, from ancient Scottish ballads to Delta blues to cowboy songs. The common thread is the song telling a good story, whether a humorous tale, a love story, or a tragedy. "The way he set the mood for each song by the tone of the song and the key he sang it in was incredible." Mike Anthony, University of Oregon. "That was a wonderful idea/gift to have Tim come and play before the movie. You set the tone Tim. I liked your song, at the end, too. Please come again." Marge Williamson, Creswell Historical Society
