John Jackson

For much of his life, John Jackson played for country house parties in Virginia, or around the house for his own amusement. Then in the '60s he encountered the folk revival, becoming the Washington, D.C. area's best-loved blues artist. Undoubtedly one of the finest of traditional Piedmont guitarists, Jackson exemplified the songster tradition at its best. His eclectic repertoire embraced the music of his guitar heroes Willie Walker (who once visited his father's house), Blind Boy Fuller, and -- most notably -- Blind Blake. Besides the blues, rags, and dance tunes associated with these masters, Jackson played ballads, country songs, and what he termed "old folk songs," such as "The Midnight Special." His confident fingerpicking, down-home Virginia accent, and contagious good humor marked his performances, live or on record, as something special. A world-class storyteller and party-thrower as well as a National Heritage Award-winning musician, Jackson recorded a half-dozen albums and toured the world as often as he wanted to. He died of liver cancer on January 20, 2002. ~ Barry Lee Pearson, Rovi

Met John @ Doc Watsons gig in 2001. What a gentle man & great performer. He was so pleased to sign CD's & thrilled that people liked his work.

heard him in Falls Church at a local New Years Eve First Night. a great musician and citizen.
Sorry to have missed this artist in performance. Happy to hear his recording Front Porch Blues. Love that rollin finger picking style.
would like to hear more of his great finger picking
Great Bluesman! I was 12 years old in 1965 when I had the unforgetable pleasure of hearing John Jackson perform his great blues at a community center in Washington D.C..
