The Celtic Society of the Monterey Bay is pleased to present the ultimate Scots troubadour Jim Malcolm with his wife, singer Susie Malcolm on Tuesday, January 28th, 7:30PM at an intimate House Concert in Soquel. Traveling the world with his guitar, harmonicas, and engaging wit, Jim sings the traditional songs of Scotland and his own masterfully crafted songs in a style which is modern and accessible, yet utterly authentic. He is highly regarded as an interpreter of the songs of Robert Burns, and has been described as “one of the finest singers in Scotland in any style”.
This time, Jim is joined by his wife Susie, an award-winning Scottish traditional singer, who has been performing with Jim Malcolm throughout Scotland for 20 years and more. She sings complex harmonies in a traditional style, and is known as a tradition bearer for the ancient ballads of Scotland, with particular expertise in the bothy ballad tradition from North East Scotland. Performing together, Jim and Susie Malcolm offer our audience a unique cultural experience.
Their concerts are always highly entertaining, peppered with funny stories and observations, in the great tradition of Scottish artists through the ages.
