Well known in the Philadelphia area, the duo of Timlin and Kane has been playing to great acclaim for audiences throughout the East Coast and beyond for forty years. Gerry was born in Ireland where he developed an early interest in traditional Irish music and Tom Kane, born in Philadelphia of Irish/Welsh stock, heard the music from his earliest remembrances. Over the years, Gerry's love of music expanded to include Scottish, American, Canadian, and Australian folk music as well. He moved to the USA in the early seventies where he teamed up with Tom. While playing the clubs and pubs of that time, Gerry and Tom played popular folk music and began to incorporate more Irish traditional and folk music that their audiences continue to enjoy.
