20 year old award winning violinist and multi-instrumentalist releasing new album this month
"James is a very talented man" - Eamonn Holmes OBE
"One of these days I'll be supporting him!" - Dave Swarbrick
20 year old fiddler and multi-instrumentalist, James Jones from Caerphilly, Wales.
James first started performing in public when at the age of eleven when he was invited to play solo to an audience of five thousand at Cardiff International Arena by the National Symphony Orchestra of London. Since then he's gone on to support Dave Swarbrick, one of his biggest inspirations to take up the fiddle in the first place, perform as a soloist at the BBC Proms In The Park and make various TV appearances such as being featured on MTV.
Whether on violin or guitar, James' playing always seems to strike a chord with people from all walks of life. Grappelli nostalgics to people who would never usually consider listening to an instrumentalist.
How he's releasing a new album which includes classics from the world of pop, rock and jazz. The album will be available at the end of the month.
