    From a CD Baby Review: "The haunting lyric quality of this CD grabs and holds you. From the first chords of THINGS I'VE ALWAYS KNOWN, you know you have found a gem in this CD. The haunting lyric quality of
    the selections sung with the artist's strong, yet gentle baritone gives a consistency throughout leaving you wanting more. From original Irish tunes to personal vignettes, this is a winner." ---Diana Lindsay, author and

    E-reviews of concerts and albums:

    "Thanks for broadening my horizons with your latest CD. While I know a lot of Irish songs most of those songs were new to me. The ones that I had heard before were arranged so uniquely that they became almost new songs. Great job!
    Thanks for sending it and continued success. John " 3/10/09
    Many thanks to John Philip Wyllie from the San Diego Troubadour for allowing me to post his private email comments on the new CD The Wild Rover.

    "I think your song Hippies is a masterwork, an epic."
    "He did a song called Shipwrecked last night... and it 'wrecked me..,' He introduced it by saying that it was inspired by some of Dylan's best story songs. Well I'm here to tell you it was right up there with them."
    --- Joe Rathburn, Folkey Monkey at Milano's

    "I was extremely taken with 'Shipwrecked.' What a great song. The imagery is so classic... The mark of  a memorable song to me is the desire to learn it and sing it. This one is in that league."
    --- Paul Espinoza of Golden Bough

    “Your voice and style are fabulous. Not many voices can capture Leonard Cohen-like sweet and deep vibrations, but yours does in its own unique and delightful way. I find it hypnotizing in a way,  takes me somewhere else.
    And, your lyrics are fun to think about too.”
    --JS in San Diego

    The 1960's were a time of dramatic cultural transformation. A new generation seemed
    ready to cast aside all of the presumptions of the post-World War II era and embark
    upon a quest to fundamentally change the way we look at the world. The essence of this
    quest was reflected poetically in the songs of the time. Songwriters and performers set
    about combining folk music traditions with lyrics that dealt with politics, consciousness,
    spirituality and personal freedom in a profoundly different way. In this class we will
    listen to these songs and reflect on how they may have succeeded or failed in changing
    the way we experience our world. Instructor and veteran folk singer Jim Hinton began
    his folk music career in the late 60's. Stay tuned for the next set of classes for 2015.

Jim is a professional folksinger, songwriter, and arranger. In the
classic style of the bard, Jim offers a vast repertoire of songs from
decades of songwriting and performing Irish and classic folk songs in
pubs and coffee houses. He sings in a relaxed baritone and
accompanies himself on the guitar, bodhran, and the mandocello.
Jim’s knowledge as a folklorist and his ability as a storyteller add
depth and relevance to his performance. His gently ironic sense of
humor connects with listeners of all ages.
