Because Jim Duncan is Curator of the British Country Music Hall of Fame it was kept secret from him until the recent BCMA Awards show when he was inducted into the British Country Music Hall of Fame.
Jim was a regular attendee at the early Wembley festivals which in turn planted a seed for him to organise the Wolvestock Festival which was held in Wolverhampton for 23 years. It began as a one day event held in a marquee in a field but with his ability and skill to spot up and coming new artists this festival grew to be one of the largest in the UK. At its peak it was attended by 20,000 people. More recently Jim has focused on the Wolvestock Music Festival.
His first musical encounter into the world of Country music was at six years old when his mother took him to see Big Bill Campbell. This started his passion in life for Country music.
Jim had also organised for Darius Rucker to play at the Wulfrun Hall in Wolverhampton which was a huge sell out success. He has also organised events which featured Ricky Skaggs, Steve Earle and Willie Nelson.
We now welcome one of the founders of the British Country Music Awards and induct Jim Duncan into the British Country Music Hall of Fame.
