Jim Hurst is one of the most versatile and tasteful guitar players I know. Whether he's flailing the rhythm for an old time fiddle tune, laying down a funky groove, or finger picking a beautiful ballad, his playing is both impeccable and creative. Accompanying this instrumental virtuosity is a rich and expres sive voice with a surprising range." Mark Schatz
That’s a great description of Jim Hurst’s talent. We are very fortunate to have an artist of this caliber at the Black Rose, not for the first time, but his third appearance for us since February 2011. You may have been at that show, or maybe the show with Jim and Rob Ickes at the Black Rose on April 26, 2013. Maybe you saw him recently with the David Grisman Folk Jazz Trio and this year’s Fiddles Vittles & Vino Festival. I take it Jim likes Colorado Springs, cause he keeps coming back.
If you saw any these performances, you don’t need convincing; but if you didn’t, come on out to the Black Rose on October 24 to see a world class, IBMA award winning guitarist. You won’t leave disappointed.www.jimhurst.com/
