Robert Jackson Trio

£8.00

Saturday 21st August – 3.00pm Lichfield Guildhall

With his stirring voice, wailing harmonica, and fingerpicking guitar, Robert ‘Magpie’ Jackson is a dynamic singer-songwriter from Lichfield. Together with Mike Seal on upright bass and Alfi Romeo on lead guitar, they deliver an infectious sound that pays tribute to the piedmont blues of Appalachia, merged with the more contemporary stylings of peter green and Rory Gallagher.

With his stirring voice, wailing harmonica, and fingerpicking guitar, Robert ‘Magpie’ Jackson is a dynamic singer-songwriter from Lichfield.
Better known for his work with the transatlantic duo ‘A Different Thread’, Jackson’s toe-tapping blend of folk, country, and americana has enthralled audiences from Berlin to New Orleans and gained the attention of both BBC and NPR radio. A poet and traveller at heart, Jackson’s though-provoking lyrics deal with romance, reckoning, and life on the open road.
Robert will be accompanied by Upright bass (Mike Seal) and lead guitar (Alfi Romeo).
The trio will be performing some songs by Doc Watson, Scrapper Blackwell, and Reverend Gary Davis, and they will be playing original country blues songs as well.
