In 1971, when Jimmy Silin arrived at his Whitefield farm as a young back-to-the-lander, he had no idea that nearby Hallowell was on its way to becoming the, “Navel of the electric guitar universe,” or that the equally handy UMA popular music program even existed. So it was partly a matter of luck that he became Jimmy Midnight and brought a blues influence into what really could be called “The Hallowell Sound.”
At gigs and jams and open mics from Maine to California, Jimmy has worked and played with many musicians of a variety of levels of skill. Four of the very best,Robby Coffin with his Combo, David Thibodeau, Peter Johnson and Alfred Lund, will be his supporting band at his upcoming show on Election Eve, Monday November 3 at Slates Hallowell. The lovely, Angela Plato Pitteroff, will be on hand to add some Trumpet solos, and a certain air of legitimacy!!!! ;) His recent CD, “Jimmy Midnight’s Stimulus Package, and an older vinyl, will also be for sale.
