Jim Byrnes

Fri. January 19th St. James Community Hall (All Ages)
8:00PM doors at 7:00PM
Presented by: The Rogue Folk Club
At age sixty-nine, Jim Byrnes has recorded a career milestone, which, given his history with numerous Juno Awards and Maple Blues Awards, among many other accolades, is saying a lot. But, if you listen just once through ‘Long Hot Summer Days’, it’s easy to be convinced that there simply isn’t anyone alive today who loves a good song more than Jim does. It’s an amazing thing to hear a performer who, well into the fifth decade of his career, the veteran of thousands of live performances and dozens of recording sessions, continues to approach creating a new album with the dedication and enthusiasm of a twenty year old.
Warm and weathered, soaring and bright, ‘Long Hot Summer Days’ is a masterwork from one of Canada’s best-loved musical icons. Records like this don’t come around every day. Listen and be taken away.

Advance tickets available at roguefolk.bc.ca, as well as at Highlife Records & Tapestry Music Vancouver.
