My name is James Tait and I am a professional pianist, songwriter and composer from Rothbury, Northumberland.
I have several professional recordings, that can be heard by clicking on my listen page.
My most recent commissions have included:
- My Bonnie Coquetdale (a song for the Rothbury traditional music festival) “fantastic, James, we knew you’d do us proud, mate“ - Ian Stephenson, musical director of the festival.
- Linden Leaves.
- Walter Mavin- a choral piece for about an historical angler (as of yet unrecorded).
- Christmas Lullaby- recorded by local school choirs combined. “This is beautiful James, and the children sing it so well. Tell them well done. It brought tears to my eyes.” - Kay Evans.
I also offer professional piano accompaniment for exams, or instrumental/vocal performances and recording session work.
As a musician, I am instinctive, creative and versatile.
I also write and perform Northumbrian dialect poetry and have written a children’s story about the famous Duergar of Simonside! Also, if CDs are more your thing, you can treat yourself to some of my recordings, or a book here.
