Tim DeHuff on Guitar

Tim DeHuff
Truly a world-class guitarist, Tim DeHuff will be joining Suzanne Sheridan and Bob Cooper for the Bob Dylan Retrospective at First Folk Sunday on Sunday July 7.
DeHuff, a native Westporter, has been playing, recording, and teaching guitar since he was a teenager. Among many greats that he has performed with are Larry Coryell, Joe Beck, Vicki Sue Robinson, Johnny Winter, and Charlie Karp.
 As DeHuff says, “My first real gig came in Los Angeles when I was 20 years old. I toured with the Main Ingredient performing at venues such as Shea Stadium and the L.A. Forum. This led to meeting and recording with drummer extraordinaire, Alphonse Mouzon. At that session I was honored to be sitting next to Lee Ritenour, Dave Grusin, David Benoit and George Duke.

After my experiences on the West Coast, I moved to New York City and did movie soundtrack and jingle work with the help of guitarist Joe Beck. Back in Connecticut in my hometown of Westport, I was given a steady gig on Sunday nights at The Players Tavern. Here is where I was able to truly hone my jazz skills amongst the best players in the Tri-State area. The stage at “The Tavern” will always hold a significant place in my life, as it was a playground for many musicians in and out of the area.”

DeHuff has remained a steady favorite of area audiences and his reputation beyond the area has remained in its rightful position – at the top of the list. Playing with DeHuff has been a dream for both Sheridan and Cooper and a greater opportunity could not have presented itself. The music of Bob Dylan presents DeHuff with an opportunity to show just how special and exciting a lead guitarist he is. Add in the vocal and rhythm guitar talents of Suzanne Sheridan and the incomparable keyboard playing of Bob Cooper and you have a show that could be one of the best ever.
