Tim Doyle, comes from a music rich family in North county Wicklow and started playing the whistle under the guidance of his father and older brother at a very young
age. He started both traditional and classical violin at the age of 7, but not happy with
being a one-instrument player took up the Concertina and Uilleann Pipes soon after.
Tim has been a multiple prizewinner at music festivals in both traditional and classical
music, including two all-Ireland titles on the Uilleann Pipes, but enjoys nothing more
than arranging and performing music as part of a group or ensemble. He is currently part
of two traditional music ensembles and gigs regularly in South Dublin/North Wicklow and
he is also one of the founding members and current artistic director of one of Dublin’s
newest orchestras Téada Orchestra, who have featured on RTÉ Lyric FM.
Tim studied music at third level at TCD and the RIAM, obtaining an honours degree in
composition and a diploma in music teaching and performance. He teaches on the
Traditional music and Sting programmes for Music Generation Carlow, and also teaches
in various primary schools and music centres in and around Bray, Co. Wicklow.
