Born in 1957, Jim Hurley has been playing violin since 1969. Influenced profoundly by South Indian violinist L. Shankar, he incorporates styles from bebop to zydeco, European classical to Zairean soukous. He studied violin with Dr. Madeline Schatz, protege of Jascha Heifetz and Josef Gingold, at Humboldt State University, where earned his B.A. in Music in violin performance, and attended master classes with Rostislav Dubinsky, Gabor and Peter Rejto, and Kathleen Winkler.
