Artist
Jim Barnes Balladeer

I am a traditional folk singer/songwriter with a contemporary feel. I write, record and perform original songs of New Hampshire, telling the story of the state in a tuneful, melodic way. From Grace Metalious, author of Peyton Place, to the Old Man In the Mountain, to politics, apple picking and the weather, my songs reflect the New Hampshire experience.

But there is more: since the mid-seventies I have also performed as an Irish singer, performing all of the traditional pub-style tunes.

Whether you hire me as an original NH singer or as an Irish singer you will get first rate entertainment for a concert, an afternoon or evening program for a library or historical society group, a birthday party, backyard barbecue and everything in between.
