Be Bop dA Jig

alt

Dan James and his fusion outfit Be Bop dA Jig have played an impressive list of dates in recent years. Playing a fusion of folk/modern jazz and blues the Be Bop Da Jig summer tour has covered 13 counties throughout England and Wales. Be Bop da Jig now includes the superlative soprano sax player and Brecon Jazz regular Martha Skilton. The Be Bop dA Jig set includes songs and instrumentals featuring original compositions by Dan James from their latest CD album Dan James presents… Be Bop dA Jig. Dan James who is based in Blaenavon, home of Big Pit and the Coal House and Indian Doctor TV series has been a full time professional folk musician for 10 years. The CD is available for sale from some local outlets, and at gigs. Dan is also in discussion with http://www.myspace.com/habitformingent about future sales and distribution and album tracks are available for digital download via this record company.

Dan is a former member of seminal folk band Firebrand (with Miranda Sykes now with Show of hands) and formerly guitarist with jazz outfit The Gareth Hall Quintet. In his time with these bands he has played Glastonbury (Pilton) festival five times and has performed as far afield as Jersey Irish Festival and Haird O Knochrach festival in Scotland. He has also appeared on two highly regarded folk compilation CDs A feast of folk and Best of British Folk alongside such luminaries as Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span and Kathryn Tickell.
