James, the bluegrass balladeer, released the documentary film "Like A Flowing River: A Bluegrass Passage" last year, celebrating his long career in music with heartwarming stories from his adventurous life. The film is available on Amazon Prime and available for DVD purchase.
Vents Magazine calls the film a "humble masterpiece," with Jubilee Cast writing it's "as much a story of hope as it is a musician's tale. It is a film for all who are carried along on the sometimes peaceful and other times, raging river that is bluegrass."
James Reams and The Barnstormers’ new single, "Rough Around The Edges"written by Marty Stuart. The song is part of the “James Reams Like a Flowing River & Soundtrack Album” that includes a total of 30 remastered tracks plus a bonus track.
James Reams is a true bluegrass music ambassador and a talented filmmaker as well. In May, he represented bluegrass music at the MIM called the "Greatest Global Music Museum in the World." The collection of over 15,000 musical instruments and associated objects includes examples from nearly 200 countries and territories, representing every inhabited continent. He also produced the documentary film "Making History with The Pioneers of Bluegrass: Tales of the Early Days in Their Own Words." Reams dedicated the film to his late and beloved companion, Tina Aridas. The film includes his discussions with first-generation bluegrassers such as Jimmy Martin, Mac Wiseman, and Jesse McReynolds.
Reams is also a busy performer and event promoter. He is currently holding a residency on the Las Vegas strip and established The Bluegrass Oldtime Jamboree in Brooklyn, New York that he has hosted for the last 25 years.
