Victoria’s Jim Moffatt will team up Aug. 11 with local Birgit Kuit at Joe’s Garage for an evening of original and contemporary folk-roots music.
Moffatt first started out in the Calgary music scene, years back as a member of the duo Bow River Lumber Company and won a top prize music award, with others on the program that included Jann Arden and Jenny Allen.
He has opened for Connie Caldor, Utah Phillips, Michael Lewis and Scott Parsons, to name a few.
His style and influences include Stan Rogers, Harry Chapin, John Prine and James Taylor.
He’s played festivals and showcases across Canada and in the U.S., including Memphis and Nashville.
The entertainment editor for The Citizen says, “He was called by for encores. Moffat’s music made them want more.”
