Speaking personally, I was extremely impressed with Jim, not only as a performer who could deal easily with a variety of instruments, songs, musical styles and dances, but also as an astonishing individual and socially-aware culturalist. Plus he's just one of the nicest guys you could probably ever meet. In McCaffrey terms, he is truly a Master Harper. If you ever get a chance to travel with him or hear him sing, take it! You won't be disappointed.
