Bio

Gavin James started learning classical guitar at the age of eleven, and used this as a basis to explore other styles of music such as folk und blues and popular songs of the day.

Gavin started hitch-hiking around Europe at the age of seventeen, supporting himself by playing in bars and busking. In the ten years of his travels he gained musical and life experiences which inspired him to write songs about his life on the road.

Gavin built up a circuit of clubs and pubs in Europe, where he has played professionally for more than twenty years. He was invited to play as supporting act to the popular British folk group Magna Carta on their tour of Germany. Since then he has played concerts and festivals in Sweden, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland and Germany. He has played on radio and T.V. in Europe and toured America and in 2006 in Australia, where he won the first prize at the Maleny Music Festival. He has built up as solid reputation for his entertaining and varied repertoire.

He has a wide and interesting programme ranging from Irish music, popular 60’s, 70’s and 80’s songs, to his own compositions and blues and boogie, accompanying himself on guitar and banjo.

Guaranteed to give an evening of entertainment for a wide variety of tastes.
