Thread Name: Jim Moray....
Subject: RE: Jim Moray....
I recently saw Jim at Celtic Connections were he was support for Karine Polwart. I had never heard of him until this point and now I can't get away from him in the press - they love him!
Personnally, I simply cannot see what the hype is about. I thought he lacked the charisma needed to be "front man" performer, his voice was rather weak. The person sitting next to me actually fell asleep it was so monotonous.
Although I can appreciate what he is trying to do, his recent success at the Folk awards in my opinion was unjustified. Perhaps in a few years once his voice has matured may I feel different.
