About James

Violin player and multi-instrumentalist from Caerphilly.
Public liability insurance of £1 million

James started playing in public at the age of 11 when he was invited to play solo to an audience of five thousand at the Cardiff International Arena by the National Symphony Orchestra of London in Abba The Show. In 2010, James won Caerphilly's Got talent, a local talent competition with his rendition of "My Way" by Frank Sinatra. A year later, when he was 12, James won the Bertie Cox trophy for acoustic jazz performance at the South Glamorgan Festival For Young Musicians. In 2012, James played on the main stage at the BBC Proms In The Park in Caerphilly. One of James' compositions, "No. 5" was used as part of the soundtrack for the Hollywood produced film, "1 Way Up" and was featured on MTV. In 2014, James supported folk icon and fiddler Dave Swarbrick, formerly of Fairport Convention on his tour. Through his playing James has helped raise money for various charities including Children In Need, Scope and the NSPCC.
