    Jim Hurst Concerts Off the Circle is a house concert venue dedicated to showcasing local talent in an intimate environment. We are pleased to be hosting Nashville based Jim Hurst for a night of guitar and vocals. To listen to Jim Hurst is to be amazed by his tasteful and flawless performances. Perfect timing, tone and his unusual picking style has enchanted guitar players from the novice to his peers. His eclectic career has made him a remarkable performer, an experienced instructor and a highly sought after session musician. The product of a musical family, Jim honed his musical style after being influenced by the likes of Tony Rice, Clarence White and Jerry Reed. Itching to play more bluegrass, Jim joined the Grammy-nominated Claire Lynch Front Porch String Band in 1995 where he teamed up with kindred spirit bassist Missy Raines. Later, Jim and Missy's duo show earned them IBMA Guitar and Bass Player of the Year for 2001 and 2002. With four solo works to his credit, Open Window, Second Son, A Box of Chocolates and Intrepid, Jim's virtuosity shines AGAIN on his new CD, Looking Glass; deft finger work, melodic mastery and smooth vocals. Jim performs his solo show full time and teaches at guitar workshops and music camps in North America and Europe and as time allows, is a member of the David Grisman FolkJazz Trio. "Jim Hurst has no problem being a one-man band. In my opinion, he's one of the best ever. He doesn't rely on gimmicks or tricks, just good old solid pickin', heart-felt singin' and wonderfully tasteful arrangements of engaging songs that you probably haven't heard before... As a member of my FolkJazz Trio he provides everything this mandolin player needs from a guitarist and singer whether soloing or accompanying." David Grisman,("Dawg"), June 2014

Q: Jim, I saw you and Roberto saturday in Hickory. Both you guys have a new fan. Great picking with passion, I really enjoyed it. My question is have you done any music with Tommy Emmanuel? Wayne
A: -Thanks Wayne! I have only picked backstage with Tommy, never in front of the audience. I think Roberto has played with him in Italy.
