Jim Byrnes

Confirmed: Aug. 28, 2015 (Archived)

Blues from St.Louis Missouri

A local legend in both music and television, blues guitarist and vocalist Jim Byrnes is one of Vancouver’s most respected and beloved entertainers. With the release of Fresh Horses (Black Hen Music) in 2004, a fantastic collaboration between Jim and well-known ‘strang-sters’ Steve Dawson and Jesse Zubot was born. A refreshing project, the ensemble mixed tunes by Neil Young and Bob Dylan with some country blues and original instrumentals. Now, with the recent release of his Juno Award-winning CD House of Refuge (Black Hen), Jim has written what is arguably the most inspired and soulful project of his career. This is gospel-tinged music filled with deep reverence and passionate expression. Whether it’s the gorgeous Of Whom Shall I Be Afraid, a nod to the 27th Psalm, or the ghostly conjuring of Robert Johnson’s Last Fair Deal Gone Down, Byrnes takes us on a stirring musical journey.
