"Jim's deep understanding of the cowboy spirit, his gift for lyrics and melody, his terrific finger picking make him a really special performer."
Hugh McLennan, Host, Spirit of the West, Syndicated Radio show -- Canada/U.S.
"This was one of the most joyful experiences of my year. Jim's lyrics are so poetic and tell the history of cowboys and pioneers in such a beautiful way. His impressive slide show brings his lyrics to life as he sings. Soothing and rich voice, talented guitarist and honest storyteller."
Fred Howes, UK, AIRBNB Online Experience Participant
"A lovely performance of history and talented songwriting. Jim is a great musician, clearly a great guy, great story teller and an experienced guitar player. I highly recommended Jim, and Ive seen a lot of live entertainment in my time!"
