Jim Volk is one of the top guitarists anywhere! An all-time JC favorite, his artistry, awesome dynamic style – and his energy – are extraordinary. You will love his guitar/vocal treatment of standards of all genres, and he will wow you with his improvisational medleys, which can last 20 minutes! His fiery, melodic hybrid style of picking has incurred countless comparisons to Kottke, Keaggy and Tommy E.
