Drawing upon a repertoire of songs from modern artists, Irish folk songs and Appalachian traditions - often with a lighthearted twist - his music speaks to audience with characters, tunes, and experiences found in the landscape of everyday life.His new CD, Shades of Grey, from SkyLoft Music Studios, features performances with Dan life-long partner - Casey Deely, and Blake Ragghianti, whose mastery on a variety of instruments enhances the enriching experiences on the each song.

2 p.m. - Jim Hart
With over 30 years of song writing and performance experience, Jim Hart draws from gospel, country, rock, and blues influences. His favorite song is the one he just heard this morning.

Jim performs as a solo artist, and/or with a band. Jim also can be found every Sunday morning leading a modern worship service at Kiski Valley Assembly of God in Leechburg, PA.

Here’s what others say about Jim:

"He does it all with commitment, enthusiasm and a light-hearted touch. Ask him if he is a songwriter, and he replies, 'Unfortunately.' He just as quickly can turn serious in his original repertoire with musings on dealing with regret and hard times, and summoning the strength to just hold on."

- Valley News Dispatch

“As a promoter of the arts, I provide an intimate atmosphere with no background noise or distraction. Solo performers under these circumstances must be skilled, professional, and comfortable with their audience. Each time Jim Hart performed for us we were rewarded with an evening of strong melodies and thought-provoking lyrics covering a variety of images and emotions. With an expansive repertoire to pull from, his relaxed and friendly demeanor, Jim easily connected with our mixed audience of fellow musicians, acoustic aficionados and those who were completely new to the songwriters’ venue.“

- Annette Dietz, Promoter/Artist
