Reviews & Highlights

‘I was looking for a quality Acoustic Guitarist to keep my customers happy while they socialised and ate and drank with friends so I stumbled upon James. I was not disappointed and neither were my customers! Within 2 weeks, I had new regulars coming just to hear James play instead of him being the atmospheric background music, he became a pull for my customers crossing my doorway! A shame he decided to up and leave or else he would still be playing at O’Neill’s, Leeds!’


Iain Gibson

General Manager

O’Neils, Leeds, UK


‘James has been a regular performer at the Irish Centre in Leeds for over a decade, and we have never been disappointed. Customers regularly look out for his next performance and our only regret is that he is no longer here to keep gigging for us!’


Tommy McLoughlin


Irish Centre



‘We were looking for a solo act to keep our drinkers happy, and boy were we happy to have had James. He played here as a resident for 6 months and he was a fantastic addition to the team. Customers stayed longer than ever because they had such a great time when James was playing. We were sorry to see that muso go.’
