Album Notes
Jim Malcolm
Original and traditional Scots Song with guitars and harmonicas

“One of the most outstanding talents to emerge from the Scottish folk scene in years.”
The Independent

“One of the finest singing voices in Scotland in any style.”
The Living Tradition

“Jim Malcolm’s Resonance is quietly, unforcefully and undeniably stunning.” Mojo

“Sconeward is not just good, it’s brilliant.” The Scotsman

Jim Malcolm was brought up in Perthshire and Angus, Scotland and was steeped in traditional music and song from a young age. He learned to play guitar while at school and by his early twenties was winning songwriting contests and playing folk clubs all over Scotland. He took up harmonica and is now a leading exponent of simultaneous guitar and harmonica, “displaying more talent than many who have made their living from harmonica alone”, as one critic wrote after an Edinburgh Festival Fringe show.
Jim’s career began to take off when he hosted the open stage at Edinburgh Folk Festival. The critics said his talent was the strongest on show, and Jim secured a contract with Greentrax for his first solo album, Sconeward. Acclaimed by critics and chosen as one of the year’s best by Radio Scotland’s folk programmes Travelling Folk and Celtic Connections, the album brought in bookings at folk clubs and festivals in Britain and abroad, and established Jim as one of the leading songwriters in the traditional idiom in Scotland. He was welcomed as: “The new male voice of Scotland”.
Songs from Sconeward have been recorded by international acts such as The McCalmans and The Poozies, and Jim has been asked to give songwriting and song accompaniment masterclasses at many festivals, including Scotland’s foremost festival, Celtic Connections in Glasgow. Next up was Rohallion, new songs recorded with gifted pianist and fiddler Dave Watt and percussionist Iain MacFadyen. “An intoxicating display of lyrical and musical genius” was how Rock ‘n’ Reel described the CD, from which Jim’s song Battle of Waterloo, to the pipe tune of the same name, was a hit. Rohallion consolidated Jim’s reputation as one of Scotland’s most exciting young folk acts, and brought repeated requests for television and radio appearances. STV broadcast a documentary on Jim and Angus singer Jim Reid for its Artery series, and Jim sang in the Northern Nights series on Grampian Television and STV.
In January 1999 Jim joined one of Scotland’s most popular international folk acts, the Old Blind Dogs from north east Scotland, and over the next seven years worked with them all over the UK, in France, Spain, Italy, Denmark, Germany, USA, Canada and Bulgaria. His song Battle of Waterloo was recorded on their sixth album, and his Wisest Fool is on their eighth album, The Gab o Mey. Jim left the band in August 2006 to concentrate on his solo work.
In 2000 Jim released his third solo CD, Resonance, on Beltane Records. Lochanside, his composition written to the popular pipe tune, has been recorded by many other acts and as become a popular part of many artists’ repertoires.
To date career highlights also include many solo tours in the USA, England, Ireland, Denmark, Germany and Canada, solo studio spots on Travelling Folk, an appearance on STV’s Hogmanay show and a tour in Uganda. His song Neptune featured on an award-winning documentary about a North Sea oil spill. He has featured on volumes four, five and six of Linn Records’ exemplary Complete Songs of Robert Burns, produced by Dr Fred Freeman.
Jim’s fourth solo CD, Home, was released in 2002 by which time his career, solo and with Old Blind Dogs, had become truly transatlantic, with four tours each year in the USA to fit in alongside his performing and recording commitments at home, and various jaunts to play festivals around Europe.
Jim recorded his first live album, Live in Glenfarg, at his home folk club, and it was released to great reviews in spring 2004. In December that year Jim picked up the coveted Songwriter of the Year award at the Scots Trad Music Awards, beating off formidable opposition from Dougie MacLean and Karine Polwart. He has been nominated for Scots Singer of the Year three times.
His fifth solo CD, Tam o Shanter & Other Tales, was released on November 1st 2005, and includes his remarkable 15-minute musical version of Burns’ best-loved poem, Tam O’Shanter, which the critics called “a masterpiece”.
Jim now tours extensively on both sides of the Atlantic and in 2018 will be touring with his 13th solo CD, Spring Will Follow On, a characteristically spellbinding collection of old, new and original Scots song.
