The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Mu­si­cal Mon­days be­gin at the Vic­to­ria Play­house on July 6 with James Hill at 7:30 p.m.

De­scribed by “The Scene,” as one of Canada’s “pre­miere roots mu­si­cians” his mu­sic winds a path through folk, roots, rock and Amer­i­cana.

He will be ac­com­pa­nied by Anne Janelle who brings soar­ing har­mony and cello to his in­stru­men­ta­tion on ukulele, vi­o­lin and drums.

“The Old Silo,” Hill’s latest al­bum pro­duced by in­die rock hero Joel Plas­kett, in­vites you into a world of new begin­nings, old re­grets, might-have-beens, burn­ing ques­tions, beau­ti­ful women, horny geezers and gold dig­gers. “If you thought James Hill was sim­ply the ukulele wun­derkind, his latest al­bum will con­vince you that he is also a great song­writer” (Pen­guin Eggs).

James Hill grew up in Langley BC and be­gan to play the ukulele at school in grade 4. For over 30 years, the Langley Ukulele As­so­ci­a­tion has sup­ported ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ukulele groups which al­low in­ter­ested stu­dents to con­tinue with ukulele well be­yond the req­ui­site two years of class­room in­struc­tion. Hill now makes his home out­side of Hal­i­fax NS from where he tours, teaches and writes.
