Jamie’s CD ‘Shades of Green’ was described as ‘more than impressive.. it stops you dead in your tracks and demands that you listen. Subtle and energetic’. (SingOut! Magazine), and his performance at the Edinburgh Fiddle Festival praised as:‘a fiddler of subtlety, complexity and passionate intensity, an engaging performer who will create a rapt audience wherever he goes’.
