After several years of piano lessons, Jim got a guitar for his birthday in 1962. As soon as he learned a few chords (notably: G, Em, C, D), he wrote his first song. It was something about the Revolutionary War and had a rhyme with “howitzers” and “trousers.” Fortunately, things have improved some, and his rhyming schemes have matured. But “howitzers” and “trousers” is intriguing nonetheless.
Jim has played over much of North America, with performances across the U.S. and Canada. When his daughter was born, he opted to leave the road and stay home to be a full-time dad. He recalls the decision as a “no-brainer.”
The music on this page represents a lifetime of work and craft but is incomplete. This group of performances will be dynamic and undergo constant change.
