Violin, Flute, Fiddle.


Acoustic music: from bluesy-jazzy sounds to traditional and contemporary folk, from standard ballads to original material.

We were a trio but have lost our flautist who also did harmony vocals - hence our search.

We're looking for a musician to replace her - if you can harmonise as well as play that would be a bonus! A flautist or possibly a fiddle player who can include playing in a 'jazzy' way among their styles of playing.

Very diverse influences - a real assortment! From sixties folkies like Baez and Simon & Garfunkel to 'leading ladies' of song like Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne, Peggy Lee, Eva Cassidy, Joan Armatrading ... from performers on the current folk scene such as the wonderful Hilary Spencer to bands like Chumbawamba. And that's just for starters! Guitarist (and harmonica player) Alan is an old folk'n'blues man who has dabbled in rock'n'reggae and vocalist Denise's first love is jazz - no wonder it's an assortment! NB Although TeaTime Assortment has been a band for 10 years, Alan has actually played in bands since the 60s!
