Tartan Texans - Jill Jackson
When will this series ever end I hear you cry. Soon is the answer as this is the thirteenth and penultimate post in the series.
We have had artists from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee and this time it is the turn of Paisley.
The fairer sex have featured as members of The Sunshine Delay and The Hazey Janes but this is the first time a female solo artist has featured
Jill Jackson has previously appeared twice in my Paisley buddies series once in her own right and once as the lead singer of Speedway
The first post in particular was one of the ones which has generated most hits suggesting that she has a loyal fan base out there.
Her main musical influences are Dolly Parton, Joni Mitchell, Shelby Lynne, Shawn Colvin, Rolling Stones , Emmylou Harris and Mary Chapin Carpenter so she certainly warrants a place in any country series. She does not mention Abba but she does an excellent cover of Dancing Queen.
I have seen her a good few times over the years mainly as a support act at King Tuts and she is always well received.
She has also done the 50 States in 50 Days tour with Kevin Montgomery.
One more post to go!
