Jim 's highly original material blends blistering flat-picking with clear-eyed experience into an americana sound best described as "sour mash for the soul." The wide range of humor, history, and drama in these songs is enhanced by rich vocals and a guitar that rumbles, roars, and breathes with a life of its own.
"Dance in Coal Canyon", included on this cd, is included in the Arizona Folklore Preserve.
Jim Pipkin carries on a family tradition of music and storytelling dating back to before the American Revolution. He is a direct descendent of DAR-listed Revolutionary War patriot Jesse Pipkin, and the grandson of Clifton White Pipkin, a North Carolina roadhouse musician during the Great Depression.
