Barely into his 30s, James Hill has already made a career out of knocking worlds against each other. His technical prowess on ukulele is achieved through attacking what is mostly regarded as a lowly folk instrument with the seriousness and nuance of technique usually associated with the highest levels of virtuosity on, say, classical violin or piano. These days, he has impressed the world with his prowess as a catchy and humorous lyricist, blending his awesome instrumental music with memorable songwriting. His entertaining and unpredictable concerts have a world-wide audience that would be envied by many wannabe rock stars. The wide span of music ranging from folk-classical-swing-rock-original is entertaining and, often jaw-dropping in his ukulele and fiddle capabilities. His wife, Anne Davison, a wonderful cellist and vocalist adds to the performance in so many ways. Above all, the Newmarket performance will be entertaining. You may find yourself at the Arts, the next day, pricing ukuleles for yourself! For more information visit www.jameshillmusic.com .
