Description

Tim performs songs he composed for Frederick McKinnon’s musical about Captain James Cook, and tells the story of the 18th-century explorer. Songs from the musical, which are available on an album, bring to life Captain Cook’s complex emotional and historical path from sailing North Yorkshire coal ships to his tragic death on the shore of Kealakekua Bay in Hawaii. Also portrayed in the musical is the deep love between Cook and his wife Elizabeth despite their countless years apart. ‘Tim helps bring to life the stories and legends of Yorkshire’s rich heritage' (Yorkshire Post).
