Jim writes and plays an eclectic mix of music; indeed his work of individual pieces tap into blues, ragtime, rhythm and blues, music hall and folk traditions. Some are extremely sensitive songs about life, people and relationships, while others are tongue in cheek.
His albums are also sprinkled with classics from the likes of J.J. Cale, Nick Drake, John Martyn, Roy Orbison, the Ink Spots, Jelly Roll Morton and Jimmy Rogers.
Having played abroad and in the UK, especially in Bristol, the South West, Wales, the Midlands and recently the South East, at clubs, pubs and festivals, he has honed his singing and playing, creating a rich and cohesive sound. His finely crafted songs and guitar are a pleasure to listen to and live performances are always memorable.
Jim will be performing on Sunday January 11th at Folk On The Moor, The Westward Inn, Lee Mill, Ivybridge, Devon PL21 9EE. Admission £10.00 — From 7:30 pm.
On February 10th, he aims to brighten up a dull Tuesday evening with a gig at Bradford on Avon Folk Club The Swan Hotel, 1 Church St, Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire, BA15 1LN. Tickets by voluntary collection — From 7:30 pm.
And finally, for now, Jim plays the Dartford Folk Club 40 Essex Road, Dartford, Kent DA1 2AU on Tuesday March 3rd. £7.00 Admission — From 8:00 p.m.
