“Jim Hurst has no problem being a one-man band. In my opinion, he’s one of the best ever. He doesn’t
rely on gimmicks or tricks, just good old solid pickin’, heart-felt singin’ and wonderfully tasteful arrangements of engaging songs that you probably haven’t heard before…
As a member of my FolkJazz Trio he provides everything this mandolin player needs from a guitarist and
singer — whether soloing or accompanying”. -- David “Dawg” Grisman, June 4, 2014
To listen to Jim Hurst is to be amazed by his tasteful and flawless performances.
Perfect timing, tone and his unusual picking style has enchanted guitar players from
the novice to his peers. His eclectic career has made him a remarkable performer, an
experienced instructor and a highly sought after session musician.
The product of a musical family, Jim honed his musical style after being influenced
by the likes of Tony Rice, Clarence White and Jerry Reed. Itching to play more bluegrass, Jim joined the Grammy-nominated Claire Lynch Front Porch String Band in 1995
where he teamed up with kindred spirit bassist Missy Raines. Later, Jim and Missy’s
duo show earned them IBMA Guitar and Bass Player of the Year for 2001 and 2002.
With four solo works to his credit, Open Window, Second Son, A Box of Chocolates
and Intrepid, Jim’s virtuosity shines AGAIN on his new CD, Looking Glass; deft finger
work, melodic mastery and smooth vocals. Jim performs his solo show full time and
teaches at guitar workshops and music camps in North America and Europe.
