Songwriter/singer Jim Kirsling is a Milwaukee native but has been living in Minnesota since 1979, where he has his own carpentry business. He is a long time fan of Bluegrass Music, a member of Minnesota Bluegrass and Old Time Music Assoc. and Nashville Songwriters Assoc. International. His favorite Bluegrass artists are Ricky Skaggs and Ralph Stanley. Inspired mainly by the storytelling skills of Tom T. Hall, he has been writing songs for the past ten years.

The songs relate stories of both local Minnesota and universal people, places and events. They are recorded with the help of artists from local Bluegrass bands, namely Geoff Schley (guitar/vocals) Dave Tousley (bass) of “Free Range Pickin” Katryn Conlin (bass/vocals) Ben Manning (guitar) of “Long Time Gone”, Phil Nusbaum (banjo) of “The Blue Drifters” and host of local radio show “Bluegrass Saturday Morning” (JAZZ88FM.com).

“Baby Boomer Blues” is a humorous look at the delights of aging.
“Hat of Many Cheeses,” is a comic story of a Packer fan growing up in rural Wisconsin.
“Driving Out To Richmond” describes traffic congestion problems that plague all major metro areas, with the setting of driving to Minnesota’s Summer Bluegrass Festival near Richmond, MN.
“There’s Nothing Like a Bluegrass Tune” is an anthology of and tribute to Bluegrass Music.
“Bluegrass Saturday Morning” is a theme song for the radio show of the same name.
“Always Grateful and True” basically states that we should be darn thankful that we’re among the 6% of the world’s population who are born in America, as opposed to Calcutta or Bangladesh.
“The Shepherd’s Story” is the life and times of a Bedouin shepherd.
