Jim Carrick, Augustine's extraordinary singer and fingerstyle guitarist.
The director of Florida Folk Festival, Ken Crawford, writes that Jim "puts the feel of 'real America' into every song he does. He sings about what hurts us and what helps us....and puts us at home with ourselves when we listen."
Jan Glidwell, St. Pete. Times, writes that Jim "sings and plays in that magical place that athletes and musicians call 'the zone', where things flow and happen as they should and everyone in the audience knows it."
What sets great performers apart from the masses is their ability to withstand the test of time. Jim does that, he is a great performer who has come into his own time.
