Hi everyone!

This spring has been unbelievably busy and just as nice. The touring kicked off with a two week Germany tour in March. Germany is probably the country I´ve spent the most time in outside of Sweden. Germans these days tend to speak english really well so embarrassingly enough my German hash´t improved for years. Did a couple of duo gigs with the wonderful guitar player Tim Spark there. Here´s a little something from the rehearsal/soundcheck at the Kulturbunker in Cologne.

After the Germany tour I was very proud to be a part of “La 5eme Nuit des Virtuosos”  tour at the paradise Island Ile de la Réunion. If you don´t know where that is, I won´t hold it against you. Few people do… Check google maps south of Madagaskar! The line up for the concert hall tour there was amazing:

Valentina LisitsaAlexeyArkhipovskiy, Buddy Greene together with Jeff Taylor.

Here´s me together with Jeff and Pascal.


I had the pleasure of having a great side kick player with me on stage as well: Pascal Manglou. Listen to the performance at Luc Donat. Here´s me performing Halifaxation together with Pascal. 

For the first time the my family joined me on tour. I can imagine worse places to hang out in while daddy´s at work:





















After Rénion Island I went directly for the UK Candyrat tour.

About two more shows to go and I´m writing this post from a countryside hotel padio in picturesque Kendal. the tour has been really intense with really cool venues and great crowds. Check out tour plan:

  2. Jimmy…saw you in Kendal and thought you were amazing. At the end I kind of gave your hand a quick shake and then went over to Antoine who I’d followed for like 2 years! I meant no disrespect and now realise how awesome your playing is. Next time I will ensure I make my appreciation known. I cannot explain how brilliant I think your playing is. Truly from the heart. Thanks

    • The Kendal gig was great fun. I´m planing a solo tour in the UK for february. I hope I will have the pleasure of shaking your hand again then. Thanks for the support. It means a lot.
