Jim Kinnear, is known in the Georgian Triangle as the 'Pianoguy'. A piano tuner and volunteer during the day, Jim started his performance career playing guitar with an Old Tyme Fiddle Band in Penticton, British Columbia decades ago. He moved his family to the Georgian Bay area from Guelph 30 years ago, and has been playing in the area for years. In the eighties, he teamed up with the late Bill Kinnear, performing delta blues & ragtime as one of the 'Kinnear Brothers', then started his own band, "Eh" Train. This morphed into the Jim Kinnear Trio with Dave Watson on trumpet, and Ralph Johnson on upright bass. He has been playing for over 30 years, both with bands and as a solo performer . . .
