Tim Jones is one of the most distinctive voices on the English folk scene. Able to alternate between mass singalongs and powerful stripped back ballads, his songwriting and delivery of traditional material has been likened to that of Peter Bellamy, Nic Jones and Fairport Convention.

Pre-order Blossom & Fruit, the new album by Tim Jones & The Dark Lanterns, here:


“A huge stride forward… an album full of consistently strong orginal songs with a leavening of English folk material” – fRoots

“Delivered with sparkling invention coupled to a reverence for the subject…. another landmark for Tim Jones and the Dark Lanterns, and for English folk” – FolkWords


Tim is regularly joined by Ted Kemp (Laura Smyth and Ted Kemp) on concertina, Karen Phillips on fiddle, Em Marshall (Crow Puppets) on vocals and guitar, and Robin Timmis (Kibitz, Hatchet Pike & Gun) on Viola. Tim and the band will be performing at folk clubs and festivals around the South of England throughout 2017.
