Jim Robinson’s first CD, Heading South, (2003)is a spirited blend of folk and country songs rooted in the musical and story telling traditions of rural life in Quebec’s Eastern Townships where Jim grew up, singing and playing guitar in a local dance band with his dad, performing in schools, community halls and barn dances as well as on local radio and television shows. Fans of the 70’s & 80’s Montreal-based road bands J.W. FISH and THE ROBINSON FOWLER BAND will remember Jim—band leader, vocalist, guitar and bass player—along with band mates Susan Fowler, Rich Hammond, Bill Davis and Ed Kaye, from their performances in clubs and hotels in the greater Montreal area, Ontario, the Maritimes and northern Vermont. It was during this time he started writing and performing some of his own material, which won recognition from the American Song Festival and a first television appearance on the national CBC series, “Who’s New.”
