About Jim Olive Bluegrass Band

     
     

Balladeer
Featuring Old-Time Country, Bluegrass, & Ballads
Self-Accompanied Vocalist on 5-String Banjo & Acoustic Guitar

Jim is an accomplished vocalist and instrumentalist with international stage experience as a bluegrass balladeer soloist. Since 1984, Jim’s easy-going musical entertainment style has been bringing fun and enjoyment to a broad spectrum of audiences and venues, from campfires to concert stages, using familiar ballads, sing-alongs, & breakdowns. His performances are typified by an easy-going delivery of a polished baritone voice and expert banjo & guitar picking. Jim's authentic renditions of old-time songs with themes of mining, railroads, simpler times and agrarian life inherently reflect the solid values of his strong moral character and work ethic, which he gained from 25 years working throughout Kentucky as a forester. Jim shares a rich family life at home with his wife and daughter, and looks forward to sharing spirited tunes with you and your audience, helping to make your event enjoyably memorable.
