    South-West England-based James Hollingsworth has a unique, complex acoustic guitar finger-style, reminiscent of Andalusian guitar, fusing elements of folk, blues, trance, metal and psychedelic rock. Since turning professional in 2006, he's played numerous festivals, folk, acoustic and rock venues nationally, and supported Nick Harper, Cara Dillon, Hazel O'Connor, 60's legends It's a Beautiful Day and Barry 'The Fish' Melton (of Country Joe and The Fish), who said: "It was truly a phenomenal experience hearing James Hollingsworth's music, I know now that the tradition of groundbreaking music is in good hands. Thank you, James – Barry Melton." 'Doing it the old way' by paying his dues far and wide, practising hard, busking nationally, and never doing the same set twice: James picks material with his mood and that of his audience. As well as being a critically acclaimed songwriter, he performs soulful interpretations from his repertoire of 300+ covers, including solo acoustic Pink Floyd Nights (http://www.jameshollingsworth.com/covers-by-song.html). As frontman with rock act JEBO , with whom he performed at London's Royal Albert Hall & Loreley (DE), James met and is continuing to learn from the musical experience of legendary Island Records producer John Burns.
