Jim Byrnes – Live Concert
October 29 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm$35
Jim Byrnes was born in St. Louis, Missouri – that’s blues country. He grew up on the city’s north side. Starting piano at age five, by age thirteen, Jim was singing and playing blues guitar. His first professional gig was in the summer of 1964. Over the years, he has had the great good fortune to appear with a virtual who’s who of blues history. From Furry Lewis and Henry Townsend to Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Albert Collins, Taj Mahal, Robert Cray and so many others, Jim has been on the blues highway for 40 years. Byrnes moved to Vancouver, BC in the mid-70s after years of drifting, working odd jobs and playing music. In 1981 he put together a band that became a staple of the local music scene. In 1986 the Jim Byrnes Band played 300 nights.
Limited in-person tickets are available, as well as streaming admission ($15).
