Jim Malcolm is the ultimate Scots troubadour. Travelling the world with his guitar, harmonicas, and engaging wit, he sings the traditional songs of Scotland and his own masterfully crafted songs in a style which is modern and accessible, yet utterly authentic. He is highly regarded as an interpreter of the songs of Robert Burns, and has been described as “one of the finest singers in Scotland in any style”.

At Green Willow, we first came to know Jim during his years as guitarist and lead vocalist with the iconic traditional Scots band Old Blind Dogs, appearing on our stage with them several times in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Since embarking on his solo career we have been pleased to continue presenting Jim to our audiences, most recently in 2019, and we are thrilled that on this tour he is joined by his wife Susie Malcolm, herself a noted singer of traditional and modern Scots ballads.

Jim Malcolm – “Suzi Wollenberg” (3/21/2019)

Following the sudden passing of longtime Green Willow president and artistic director Suzi Wollenberg in August, 2009, Jim Malcolm wrote a tribute to her which he recorded on his 2011 album Sparkling Flash. Jim performs the song here as part of his appearance for us at the Blue Ball Barn in Wilmington, Delaware on March 21, 2019.

Blast From The Past – Jim Malcolm (November 4, 2005)

As we prepare to welcome Jim Malcolm back to our stage on Thursday, March 21 at the Blue Ball Barn (tickets are still available!), we thought it would be fun to dive into the archives and look back to one of Jim’s previous appearances with us.

We first met Jim in the late 1990’s when he replaced Ian F. Benzie as lead vocalist for the Old Blind Dogs and made several appearances with them for us during the years we held our concerts at O’Friel’s Irish Pub on Delaware Avenue in Wilmington, Delaware. In 2002, Jim left the Dogs to pursue his solo career, appearing for us on his own for the first time at the Buzz Ware Center in Arden, Delaware in October of 2003.

From May, 2004 through March, 2006 we held most of our concerts at the 4W5 Cafe, which was located at 4 West 5th Street in Wilmington (hence the name), at the corner of 5th and Market Streets. (Sadly, the venue is no longer in existence). The photos in this post feature Jim’s performance there on November 4, 2005.

Jim Malcolm, at Green Willow – 11/4/2005

Jim has returned to our stage several more times over the years, and each time he continues to charm us with his music, stories, good nature and good humor. Whether he is to you an old friend – as he is to us – or a new face, we hope you’ll come out on March 21 to join in the fun. Visit greenwillow.org, send email to info@greenwillow.org, or call (610) 566 4932 for more details.
