Birds of the Cloud Forest at Lancasphere 2

Birds of the Cloud Forest Guitars

Tim Baum is a fabulous and unique musician who performs as a one-man-experimental-music-band under the name Birds of the Cloud Forest. I’ve known Tim for over seven years and a majority of the times I’ve seen him perform in public he was playing oboe with some amazing local jazz ensembles.
