Jim Page, Michael Gray, and Grant Dermody
Jim has been on the scene for more than twenty years, and his reputation continues to grow. He has shared the stage with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Dan Bern, Michelle Shocked, Leftover Salmon, Mickey Hart, J.J. Cale, Robert Hunter, Chuck Brodsky, and John Hammond. His songs have been performed by Christy Moore, Michael Hedges, John Trudell, The Doobie Brothers, Joanne Rand, Casey Neill, and (yes) David Soul.
Often cited for his biting political pieces, he is in constant demand by the social movements of the day.
"More reminiscent of the Woody Guthrie I heard as a boy than anyone I've listened to in the intervening years" Philip Elwood, San Francisco Examiner
"A master of the craft of song writing, a wicked guitar player and the most relevant topical musician of his day." Casey Neill, Earth First! Journal
Jim easily fits into the concert hall or the class room. Brian Tokar, Goddard College, says: "Even the most skeptical students were convinced by the end of class that, in your able hands, the rich tradition of topical song writing is alive and well in the late 1990s. Your songs bring a phenomenal mix of humor, irony and lyrical brilliance to exposing the outrages and absurdities of our times."
Or in the house concert. From Peter Sussman, Duncan, British Columbia: "Jim is truly one of the best song writers of our day.the range of his creations is extremely broad and runs the gamut from biting satire to beautiful, sensitive love songs. He must be heard."
And of course, at the festivals sitting in with his electric friends:
"The best had to be when that wonderful folksinger Jim Page joined the mainstage outdoor closer Leftover Salmon. He strums a few chords to get them started and then they build the melody up. Jim starts to improvise lyrics And all of Leftover Salmon is grinning ear-to-ear. I've seen 1500-plus concerts and that moment was as wonderful a band/audience connection as I've ever witnessed." Dupree's Diamond News
"Jim's been writing great topical songs for as long as I can remember, bringing his acute wit and wry humor to a host of subjects that can really use both. In the tradition of Woody and Dylan, he cuts right to the heart with music you actually enjoy listening to. I'm a longtime admirer."
