ABOUT JAMIE

Fiddler | Guitarist | Singer

New Zealand born musician Jamie McClennan has over 15 years experience as a touring musician.
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’.

Jamie has engineered and produced Scottish singer Emily Smith‘s albums and performs regularly with her as a duo and with her band.

2018 has seen Emily and Jamie recording a new duo album ‘Unplugged’ featuring ten tracks, seven previously unrecorded songs including previews to our full studio album coming out in 2019.   The new Studio album is almost all songs written by Jamie and produced by Ross Hamilton.   Jamie and Emily are performing more and more as a duo and these two albums reflect their shared love of Americana and folk music.

He performs with Australian singer James Fagan in an antipodean themed duo The James Brothers and has a solo fiddle album ‘In Transit’, all of his own tunes with some superb accompaniment.
