"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.

Evening or Afternoon Concerts

  • Two fifty minute sets with a 20 minute intermission

  • Communities have often provide a 'Western Meal' ahead of the concert and price tickets accordingly.

The Usual Stage Setup

  • Jim usually is a one man band with robust finger picking giving the impression of 3 guitars at once!
