Jim Reader


Singer/Songwriter of western heritage folk/roots music. Jim is a unique finger-picker with outside-the-box stylings from years of writing music commercials and pop music. His performances include a dynamic visual component with graphics, historical photos and artwork that augment the lyrics to his songs and stories. His material is a refreshing perspective from what people normally may think of ‘western’ or ‘cowboy’ folk music – definitely not a 3-chord strummer! Lyn Kot, past president of the Weyburn Concert Series (SK), notes: “Jim is the whole package; a seasoned performer and the ultimate storyteller whose talent and warmth will draw you in.”
