Full Profile
Tim Lowry

Tim is a human time machine who makes history happen in your hands and collapses hours into moments of magic. It is a pleasure and a joy to be swept along into one of his narratives and an instant later you realize an hour has passed. With careful and deliberate, but nearly invisible crafting, Tim’s “off-the-cuff” stories flow as luxuriously as melted chocolate and are just as delicious. A Festival favorite, Tim ranks among the top tellers on the audience’s “must-hear” list.
