"Jim McAteer is a guitarist and singer from the musical city of Glasgow in Scotland.

Recent gigs include support slots for a dazzling list of folk legends - Martin Carthy, Wiz Jones, Davey Graham, Robin Williamson and John Renbourn, as well as appearing in his own right at international venues from New York to Iran.

He founded the monthly Magic Carpet Cabaret at popular bohemian hidey-hole Tchai Ovna tea house, showcasing new and exciting live music and also hosts the weekly world music show - Global Hobo - on Subcity Radio.

A true hobo at heart, he can never resist the call of the open road, to grab his guitar and head off into the hazy blue unknown - recently completing an epic road trip with a friend, driving a faithful old hatchback from Scotland to Kazakhstan, recording buskers and musicians in each country as they travelled the ancient Silk Road from West to East all the way to the border of China!

Future gigs and travels include upcoming slots at the West End festival in Glasgow, The Insider Festival in Aviemore and an extensive tour of northern Europe and Scandinavia with fellow musical expeditionaries Mike & Solveig.

Music is his favourite thing - in particular Yodeling! It's the primal scream of the soul you know!

Jim McAteer is available, ready and delighted to PLAY!"
