Jim Skewes - Guitar and Vocals

Jim Skewes has been entertaining diners and fans in the Seattle and Portland music scenes for three decades. His new CD "Blue to Black" is selling fast, with original acoustic folk and blues recently described at Seattle's Folk Life Festival as "Folk Noire."

Jim began playing guitar when he was seventeen, joining bands or playing solo in the Seattle area. He enrolled at Cornish College of the Arts, where he received a Bachelor of Music degree in guitar and voice. While performing in restaurants and hotels at this time, Jim began using a wireless system to enable consistent sound coverage in large or odd-shaped rooms. Presently the technology is such that Jim can play for large outdoor gatherings while employing the intimate tone required for acoustic guitar music.
