James Birkett | Back
Guitar

Guitarist Jim Birkett is a master of many styles, but is best known as a superb interpreter of the music from the early swing era. His 'Jazz Guitar Duo' with Rod Sinclair has won awards for its rediscovery and re-interpretation of the work of pioneers such as Eddie Lang and Carl Kress, and he has also struck up fruitful playing partnerships with other North East guitarists Roly Veitch and Giles Strong.
