Performance Sunday

Jim first performance in Auburn was on Super Bowl Sunday, 2009. At intermission Jim handed over the show to his mate Robert Burns (see photo below), quite the rascal. At the 2010 AHC performance Napoleon Bonaparte, George Washington and others joined the show. We welcome Jim back for a fifth time to Auburn House Concerts again on Super Bowl Sunday, 2019.

Samples from many of Jim’s recordings are available on JimMalcolm.com.

We recommend his music and comedy DVD in honor of Robert Burns’ 250th birthday, Bard Hair Day—Robert Burns Returns.
