“Jim Hurst is one of the most versatile and tasteful guitar players I know. Whether he’s flailing the rhythm for an old time fiddle tune, laying down a funky groove, or finger picking a beautiful ballad, his playing is both impeccable and creative.  Accompanying this instrumental virtuosity is a rich and expressive voice with a surprising range.”  Mark Schatz 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.  It’s no surprise, then, that his musical mastery began with a musical upbringing paving the way for a winding and varied career path. visit his website:http://www.jimhurst.com/index
