June Feature Artists:


Jim Sharkey
web site
Singer-songwriter Jim Sharkey is an Irish and Americana folk musician whose original songs blend Celtic traditional ballad influences with contemporary issues that are often set in the area he resides. Jim grew up in County Roscommon, Ireland, and came to the US in 1982 when he joined the US Navy in London, England. His compositions are much like the voice with which he sings them: gentle, often introspective, and attuned to the quieter, slower-paced rhythms of small-town life.

Randy Walker
