Jim Bows & The Flycatchers play original acoustic music that evokes the feeling of living in the mountains and a rural lifestyle in their native Switzerland.  Influenced by American bluegrass, folk and country music traditions and seminal artists such as Doc Watson, Tony Rice and Jim Croce.

This is a family band (Jim and two of his sons Bensch and Josh) who are all are multi-instrumentalists changing effortlessly between, guitar, dobro, mandolin and bass. Watch their fingers fly as they play & sing their own brand of toe tapping, feel good music.
