notloB Parlour Concerts - Two-time IBMA guitar player of the year, Jim Hurst
To listen to Jim Hurst is to be amazed by his tasteful and flawless performances. Perfect timing and tone and his unusual picking style has enchanted guitar players from the novice to his peers. Born into a musical family, Jim spent his youth playing guitar under the influences of flat-picking greats Tony Rice, Doc Watson, George Shuffler, and Clarence White, but the finger-style playing of Merle Travis, Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed was the “turn in the road” for Jim.
Outstanding singers Ray Bauwens and Christina White join forces with pianist Malcolm Halliday to present a concert of the ever popular George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Victor Herbert, accompanied by delicious desserts.
