AWA is proud to present Longview guitarist Jim McLennan.

Jim recorded for Kicking Horse Records and was a fixture on the folk club and festival circuit in the 70's and 80's. In his “gap years,” Jim raised a family and authored several books about fly fishing. These days he can often be seen in a duo with his friend Steve Fisher.
