Respected folklorist and musician Warren Fahey has kindly offered to say a few words to support my songs.
"Jim Low's songs deserve to be heard. They are genuine story songs that have a direct link to this land and this precious culture of ours. In many ways the songs link us to our history in the same way traditional songs served us in allowing us to record our emotional history. In this rapidly changing world many of our stories, especially those set in song, tend to be lightweight and dumbed-down. Many of them, masquerading as 'folk songs', are far removed from reality and, unfortunately, musicality. I've been listening to Jim's songs for some years now and have been taken by his ability to create and sing songs that get to the heart of the story, entertain and beg to be listened to again. This is a very satisfying selection of songs that should take his songs to a wider audience."
