"Jim Chorley at The Wessex Folk Festival"

"Jim Chorley performed at this years Wessex folk festival. He is a talented guitarist and impressive songwriter. He plays traditionally based folk music that is contemporary and fresh and often spiced with flashes of real humour. It was a real delight to have him perform on the Small Stage this year - Bob Ford, The Small Stage, Wessex Folk Festival"

"All in Good Time" (one take, one track recording of 10 of my songs)



I am an Acoustic/Folk, Singer/Songwriter from Southampton now living near Winchester U.K
My music ranges from sing along Sea Shanties to Bluesy Ballads to Soulful Folk with even a song about Crop Circles thrown in for good measure...( My Dad "Dave Chorley" and his friend "Doug Bower" were responsible for the crop circles around Winchester and Wiltshire in the late 1970s early 80s)

The D.I.Y ethos of Two Tone and Punk were early influences and inspired me to pick up a Guitar and write about my own experience...Also 70s Reggae made a lasting impression and although cannot be heard directly, still permeates my creative process...as does Soul,Folk,Country, Hip Hop and on and on...
I play regularly and have supported a number of Artists including the Folk Legend Martin Carthy, 60s Folk singer Julie Felix and Paul Simmonds of The Men They Couldn't Hang...I have also played at Folk Festivals and clubs and acoustic evenings....
