James is one of Canada's most successful and respected musicians, and one of the brightest stars on the world folk scene today. He is known for his lilting baritone voice, his driving rhythm guitar, and keen sense of scene and narrative.
For this performance James will be showcasing songs from his recently released thirteenth album, Second-Hand, and will be accompanied by his long-time musical-pal David Woodhead on bass.
James is a commanding performer, developing an intimate rapport with audiences through his stories and sense of humour, leaving them spellbound with passionate renditions of songs that touch on universal emotions and relate historical events to the present. His masterful storytelling, over the course of thirteen albums, has been part of the bedrock of his success earning him nominations and awards, including a Juno, a Canadian Folk Music Award, and first prize in the prestigious USA Songwriting Competition. He released his first album, Timelines, in 1987, and his thirteenth and latest album, Second-Hand, last fall. For his Regina appearance, James will be accompanied by renowned session musician, David Woodhead, on bass.
James’ songwriting has often been cited for its keen sense of history. On Second-Hand, he also takes on a number of topical issues of concern to us all. This, coupled with a command of the language and delivered with an unmistakably rich baritone, it’s not surprising that James has come to be considered one of Canada’s all-time great singer-songwriters.
