Jim is a Western Mass singer/songwriter who plays folk and blues.
He can often be seen at Luthier's Co-Op in Easthampton MA or similar venues.
One of Jim's original songs has recently been featured as the title track to Jorma Kaukonen's latest album release "Ain't In No Hurry".
“Country Standard Time” interview with Jorma Kaukonen:
Like most of Kaukonen's solo works, the new album is a wonderful mix of well-chosen covers and perfectly conceived originals. Jim Eagan's contemporarily written "Ain't In No Hurry," inspired Kaukonen enough to make it his un-ironic title track.
"Jim's a really nice guy, and he was one of our students at the Ranch a couple of years ago; he's not as old as me, but he's not a kid," says Kaukonen. "Our Ranch thing goes from Friday morning to Monday morning, and on Sunday afternoon, we have an open mic, and everybody gets to play a song. Jim played that song, and my wife, Vanessa, went, 'That's a great song. You've got to do that song.' And I went, 'You're right.' We talked to him about it, and he sent the lyrics and a recording, and when we got into it, I said, 'This is a great title for where I am in my life today.' On the one hand, you are in a hurry to get things done because time is finite, but there are a lot of things you're not in a hurry to get done. And I just really like the song."
