He’s Scotland’s Songwriter of the Year in 2004 and three-times nominated for Scots Singer of the Year.
Jim Malcolm’s concerts are like a musical tour through Scotland’s landscape and history, with humor his constant companion. Jim Malcolm performs award-winning original songs, traditional ballads and the works of Robert Burns, with guitar and harmonicas. His harmonica work is pretty hot and he has a great voice. The Friends Meeting House is a 70 seat venue and he has sold out here before, so I recommend getting tickets early.
Here is what others say:
“Jim Malcolm’s voice has the complex individuality of an aged single-malt whisky.”
“One of the finest talents to have emerged through the Scottish folk scene in years”
“One of those pure warm Scottish folk voices one never tires of listening to.”
Jim released a 2015 CD: Live in Perth , which is a rewarding selection of old and modern Scottish folk song, recorded live with no studio jiggery pokery in front of a lively audience of fans, friends and family. For 2017, Jim and Susie Malcolm have a duet album; they are great together. The new CD, entitled Spring Will Follow On is a selection of traditional and more contemporary songs they love, set alongside two new compositions from Jim based on popular fiddle tunes. A cheerful collection!
