WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Something of a Blues enigma, Jim is a shy and retiring man who admits that recording studios fill him with dread and that he'd rather go fishing with his dog for company. But he has toured much of Europe and the USA captivating audiences with his intimate blues style. Softly spoken, Jim often surprises his audience when he breaks out his barrelhouse blues vocal and for years has been revered among professionals as a consummate finger picker and slide guitarist. Quietly modest Jim may be the best bluesman in the UK - although you'd never guess he wasn't straight out of the Deep South.
