"Calamity" Jim Fisher… a multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter. Jim has been playing in bands since he was fifteen years old. Starting as a rhythm guitarist playing rock and roll. By the early seventies he had found his way to traditional country and bluegrass music. Regarded as the founder of the bluegrass scene in Western Australia, he has influenced many fine musicians who have gone on to their own success.

While he has performed ably as a sideman for top acts, it is as a front man that he shines, known for his quick wit and the enthusiasm he shares with other musos and the crowd.

Referred to frequently in Western Australian press as the "living legend", Jim has defied industry trends and his own health problems to remain a commanding performer, a respected musician, singer, writer, instrumentalist and ultimately as an entertainer.
