Jim’s own brand of folk music draws influence from the traditions

one drift from their template and grounds the music deep into the
British disposition and what’s relevant to his character, time and

TOYFACE / 8pm
Formed in 2007 after a chance meeting in the back of a broke down
traveller’s truck - both hailing from the Bristol/Somerset area, Tamsyn
and James started writing and performing songs together shortly
afterwards. Lyrics and melodies are provided by Tamsyn, around which
James builds the piano pieces and the rest of the band play. Described
as ‘old swing in a new style’, Tamsyn’s songwriting resides somewhere
between fun-time party music and more conscientious, emotional lyricism.
