This high energy trio offers an eclectic blend of different genres, mixing instrumental improvisation with traditional sounds and vocals.
Jim has played at the Fox Theatre, Atlanta Symphony Hall and many other concert venues. He was one of the early innovators in the New String Acoustic Movement – incorporating jazz, bluegrass, world music, rock, classical and vocals. With the formation of Clear Creek, he leads a trio that continues to deliver a truly innovative, entertaining, and dynamic acoustic sound.
