Biography

There are at least 4 artists named Tim Hart.

(1) Tim Hart is a folk singer-songwriter from Sydney, Australia. He is a member of the band Boy & Bear. His debut solo album Milling The Wind was released in August 2012.

(2) Tim Hart (9 January 1948 - 24 December 2009) was an English folk singer and multi-instrumentalist, best known as a founding member of electric folk band Steeleye Span.

Tim Hart was born in Lincoln. His father, Rev. Canon Dennis Hart, was the vicar of St Saviour’s in St Albans. Hart began his life as a musician performing with the Rattfinks, St Albans School’s second band, the first being The Zombies. In 1966, he began performing with the Blackpool born Maddy Prior, touring English folk clubs. In 1968 and 1969 the duo recorded two albums: Folk Songs of Olde England, (Volumes One and Two). And Summer Solstice.

From 1970 to 1982, Hart and Prior were the backbone of Steeleye Span. In 1971, as well as recording two albums as part of Steeleye Span, they recorded Summer Solstice - a much more professional recording than their first two albums, including a string arrangement by Robert Kirby, better known for his work with Nick Drake. Almost every song that Hart sang was traditional. Steeleye Span’s commercial success peaked in 1975. They toured in the United States and Australia and used electric instruments more frequently. However, further hits eluded them. They announced that their 1978 tour of the United Kingdom would be their farewell.
