Eisemann Center presents Graeme James
Born in Nelson, New Zealand, Graeme James started out playing violin in the Netherlands as a 7-year-old with the desire to become a classical concert violinist. He pursued this goal throughout high school as well as branching out into folk and Celtic music, playing fiddle and singing in his family’s folk band playing local events. It was while he was at university that he put down the violin and started learning other instruments, the most significant of which being the acoustic guitar which enabled him to start writing and playing his own songs. In 2010, he bought a loop pedal which would finally allow him to combine and layer the various instruments that create his unique sound.
