JIM WANN, much honored composer/lyricist and performer (Pump Boys And Dinettes, King Mackerel & The Blues Are Running) ), celebrates UNC and Chapel Hill roots in a new recording, Jim Wann & Friends: Blue Heaven.  Don Dixon, Marti Jones, Bland Simpson, Red Clay Ramblers, Tony Williamson, Rod Abernethy and more join Jim in the upbeat spirit of the original Cat’s Cradle, where many enduring friendships and musical journeys began.


Blue Heaven


New Jim Wann songs, in a variety of Southern folk-influenced styles, recorded in Chapel Hill in an acoustic ensemble setting produced by Don Dixon.  Melodious, witty, warm; skillful, joyful playing and singing.
