Jim Volk's masterful yet whimsical performances have spellbound audiences of all age groups and backgrounds for over two decades. His fiery hybrid style of picking has incurred countless comparisons to Kottke, Keaggy and Hedges. His solo release, “Blue Wheels…and Other Guitar Favorites” has drawn much critical acclaim and award nationwide.
Volk artfully incorporates electric guitar techniques and devises for a truly “Modern Acoustic” presentation that will alter your perception of the instrument.
Jim Volk’s critically acclaimed solo guitar work draws from traditional and contemporary styles around the world. More like a bird's eye journey of the world of music rather than focusing on one specific style. He will go from the 16th century to '70s metal then swing it Like Chet meets Django within a measure; and oh the fun listeners have trying to count the number of themes he has woven into that 10 minute medley.
Jim conducts guitar clinics as well as individual classes and workshops at Uptown Strings in Westerville Ohio.
