The tone for the evening was set by Jim Byrne as he brought comfort to the soul with his eloquent and mellow songs. Showing commendable dexterity on the acoustic guitar, he made the time pass in an amiable manner with the cherry on the cake being the intertwined elegance of the harmonies when Dinny joined him on stage.
We were delighted to have Jim Byrne in our Festival Showcase. His highly innovative compositions were well received by our Festival-goers and we would certainly welcome him back Murdie Kennedy, Linlithgow Folk Festival "Excellent! Jim is breath of fresh air amongst Glasgow's acoustic scene Dochan MacMillan, Free Candy Sessions Music Promotor
Jim Byrne's unique and personal set at the Open Mike session at The Place Music Club Milngavie, was perfectly suited to the intimate, cabaret atmosphere in this popular club. His engaging lyrics and slick guitar puts Jim firmly on the performance circuit in Scotland. Worth looking out for." Erne Parkin, The Place Folk Club, Milngavie.

..a polished, urbane performer." The bluesbunny review
Jim Byrne took the next spot. Instantly relaxed and elevated the mood with a few words and his fingerstyle playing. Jim's songs seems to be hewn from the everyday and he mixes a lyrical turn of phrase with good song structure. " The Lone Groover
