Originally hailing from Lighthouse Cove, Ontario, Canadian capital of the big Muskee, Jim’s musical career has taken him from coast to coast Several times.

His parents bought him a guitar for his 8th birthday. A plywood crate from the Eaton’s catalogue with a hula girl stenciled on the front. Little did they know what they were beginning- they were only hoping that he’d stop stealing the neighbour’s guitar.

Since his first song learned “The House of the Rising Sun,” Jim and his guitar hitchhiked from St. John’s to Victoria, from Los Angeles to New York, and back again. Finally, Jim has happily settled here on the Left Coast where he feels right at home.

Among Jim’s musical influences are such all-time-greats as Harry Chapin, Chris De Berg, Stan Rogers, John Prine, and James Taylor. Jim played with the Bow River Lumber Company, and has opened for the likes of Utah Phillips, Rosalie Surell, Connie Caulder, Micheal Lewis, and Scott Parsons. He’s a folk festival veteran, and was recently featured at local sweet spot, the Spiral Café and Island Folk Festival for the 3rd time.

Jim’s 1st CD, titled “Live at Crystal Gardens” includes originals such as Jim’s “Working Hard, Looking for Work, Working Nowhere Blues , a song he wrote while staying at the Catholic Women’s Single Men’s Hostel. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’lltap your toes and buy the T-shirt.

"If Stan Rogers sang Opera and Pavarotti sang Folk you would have a idea of the passion and power of Jim Moffatt."
