Newport Folk Festival - Jim James

August 11th, 2008

Episode 90 of 429 episodes

The solo sets of Jim James have become somewhat of a hushed spectacle, the kind that leaves a person spellbound for days afterward. Performing with just an acoustic guitar and a little help from M. Ward, the bearded singer practically hypnotized the audience with his stunning voice. Originally recorded from the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I. on August 2, 2008.
