Jim Hurst 

When: Tue., Dec. 27, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $12
After serving time in some pretty high-level country stars’ bands, singer/guitarist Jim Hurst spent a number of years in Claire Lynch’s ensemble, and then in a groundbreaking duo with bassist Missy Raines, before going out all on his own. Fortunately, as his latest project — the aptly-titled just-a-guy-and-his-guitar Intrepid — makes clear, Hurst is an infinitely capable musician whose solo work can be every bit as riveting — and varied — as that of many full bands. Though he’s earned a couple of IBMA Guitar Player Of The Year awards, bluegrass-style flatpicking is just a small part of his repertoire, which includes the assured, energetic fingerpicking showcased in Intrepid’s “Open G Medley.” Hurst isn’t afraid to mix up his styles, either — and he’s a warm and engaging singer, to boot.
— Jon Weisberger
