James Findlay first came into the public eye after winning the 2010 BBC Young Folk Award.

James performs as both a solo artist, and also with Jon Dyer and Alfie Gidley as The James Findlay Trio.

"Bloody hell, what a voice! This was my first thought as he launched into his songs. He’s warmly charismatic with that sparkle of personality that draws a crowd along with him.” Jon Boden

"He’s got an appositely brilliant voice that lad. It’s not just soft and mellow but it has got a lot of depth and a lot of passion to it. Love his stuff!” Mike Harding

James comes from a family of folk singers & his enthusiasm lies firmly within the English tradition. He is particularly passionate about songs from his home counties of Dorset, Somerset and Devon. He has an extensive repertoire and love for song and this really shows through his knowledge and understanding of the material.
