Heavily influenced by acoustic greats such as Neil Young, Merle Travis, Bo Carter, and Mississippi Fred McDowell, James uses fingerpicking, slide guitar, rack-harmonica, and a variety of tunings to perform sweet renditions of songs from the folk and country blues genres.
Celtizoid-fusion trio, The Boils, are: Jack Callahan(songwriter, singer, guitarist), Mike Austin(percussionist), James Conway(harmonicist, tin whistler). The Boils spontaneously interweave the traditional dance music of Ireland, original Callahan songs, comedy, funk, and potent craft beer into an entertaining evening of fun, magic, and malarkey.
