Currently, Jim is based in Bell Harbour in the Burren area of North Clare in the West of Ireland. He has written two albums of original material that are eagerly anticipated. ‘Just A Piece Of ’ is now available.
Jim McKee is a renaissance man, a singer, a songwriter, a musician, a bit of a philosopher and very much a visual artist.
For some ten years now, he has lived in the Burren. It has become his spiritual home, a major factor in his life. He finds inspiration all around him… in a cluster of wild flowers, a bend of the lane, a corner of a bog, a tractor in the landscape, Boats at rest at the quay, the colours of the Burren.
