Grammys 2017

So excited to see an album I played on nominated for a Grammy this year.

I had the pleasure of playing Bass on Celtic Woman’s album Destiny which is up for an award in the “Best world music album” section alongside Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Yo Yo Ma & the Silk road ensemble, Anoushka Shankar & Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, very distinguished company indeed. Good luck to all, especially Gavin Murphy for asking me to play on it, thank you.

Cheers, James B

In another life…..

Way back then David Wray and I made surfboards for they who practiced the gentle art..the aroma of polyester resin, acetone & spray paint is forever in my nostrils…..and yes, we surfed as well!
