ABOUT ME

JAMIE MCCLENNAN

JAMIE MCCLENNAN

Fiddler | Guitarist | Singer

New Zealand born musician Jamie McClennan has over 15 years experience as a touring musician. 2009 saw the release of his long awaited first solo recording ‘In Transit’, a collection of tunes Jamie had written over the years travelling and touring around the world, with a band of friends including Gerry Paul, Alan Doherty, Duncan Lyall and Fraser Stone, the album is still available today!! In 2014 Jamie teamed up with Aussie, James Fagan to form a new duo, The James Brothers, with their debut album released the following year. www.thejamesbrothers.co.uk
Jamie grew up in a house filled with music; his parents, both musicians, ran a folk club and folk festival in Hamilton, New Zealand during the 70s & 80s and their home was a regular stop over for many touring musicians. He first became interested in the fiddle at the age of nine, recalling sitting out in the sun porch at home mesmerised by Canadian fiddler Leo Ready playing the well-known fiddle tune ‘The Four Poster Bed’.

These days, Jamie delegates his time between performing and recording with his wife, Scottish singer Emily Smith and The James Brothers. With any spare time being spent on graphic and web design, making flat whites, watching rugby, cooking, playing and running.
