Composer & Music Director
James is delighted to be back in the park to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Fishing for the Moon, the first show he wrote with Fred Alley. With collaborator Laurie Flanigan Hegge, he created Northern Sky’s See Jane Vote. In addition to the opening and closing songs in Tongue ’n Cheek, his shows written with Fred Alley include Northern Lights, Lumberjacks in Love, The Bachelors, and Guys on Ice, all directed by Jeff Herbst. James collaborated with Jacinda Duffin and Laurie Flanigan Hegge to create Loose Lips Sink Ships. James conceived and created musical arrangements for the Northern Sky revues Beneath the Northern Sky, Goodnight Irene, Harvest Moon, Old Friends, Fish and Whistle, and Sweet Baby James. His music also appeared in Belgians in Heaven, Packer Fans from Outer Space, Ya Ya You Betcha, Fool Me Once and the original 1995 Bone Dance. He is grateful to have this opportunity to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Fishing for the Moon with fellow veterans Jeff Herbst and Karen Mal. James is delighted to once again be a resident of Door County. He’d like to thank Kay, DavidSarah, and all of the Spoons.
