This guitarist, singer, and songwriter is Canada's answer to the U.S.'s Chris Duarte or Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Colin James Munn grew up in Saskatchewan, listening to folk and blues. After learning the penny whistle and mandolin, he quit school and worked with a succession of bands, among them the Hoo Doo Men.
All of James' albums are well-recorded affairs. The only problem is, he doesn't tour the U.S. very much, and spends most of his time in Canada. In 1998, he toured with Steve Winwood, Little Feat, and Keith Richards. ~ Richard Skelly
