    Jim Hurst in concert Jim Hursts unique picking style and mastery of guitar wows audiences across North America and Europe. He combines savvy guitar picking, broad vocal range and a musical eclecticism culminating in jaw-dropping performances. While he occasionally collaborates with other greats, notably David Grisman and Rob Ickes, his solo performance is what keeps audiences mesmerized. Jims dexterous guitar work and pleasing vocals can lead you down a path of a lovely ballad, get your feet stomping to a train song and ultimately leave you spellbound.in just one medley! 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." One voice, one guitar, one great performance! A wine and cheese reception is included during intermission. Tickets available at the door: $15 for adults, $10 seniors/students. For more details, visit www.saint-patricks.org or (704) 663-5659.

Q: How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck, could chuck wood???

A: Depends on where this woodchuck is doin' the wood chuckin'. If in the US, there's probably production standards to meet - especially if it is a union gig. If at one of the big non-union conglomerates, he better work his tail off or risk being fired (of course either way he'll lose his job just before he is eligible to retire with benefits). If it is 'off shore', he has to work long hours for very little compensation, wouldn't be allowed to chuck any other trees than what he's told to, prohibited from having any communication with any other woodchucks during working hours (or after, or before). And if he is related to the boss somehow, he will get to move up to a CSR position where he must learn to speak English so he can communicate with US woodchucks having trouble with their software. And, if he lives in a legal medicinal-use place, he probably won't get much wood chucked as he will be too stoned to really work, and won't care one way or another about it. In this instance, he might just eat whatever production he was able to muster.
