Jim is an interpreter of songs and Unjugged spotlights his ability to get to the centre of a lyric – even one written 80 years ago – and to extract its meaning and make it relevant to a new generation. While his influence on American music in the 60s is great (if little known) and his jug band continues to be an inspiration for modern folk musicians, it’s Jim’s way with a song that is his greatest legacy and the one that Hornbeam highlights here. So take it away Jim, unjugged……
