Gage Hall Coffeehouse
Saturday, January 18th, 7:30 PM
featuring Veronica Jackson
On Saturday, January 18th at 7:30 pm the 2013-14 Gage Hall Coffeehouse Series presents an exciting evening of acoustic blues performed by the South's hottest blues singer Anything Veronika Jackson sings with her amazing voice sounds soulful. Without having to think about it, plan it or emulate it, she sings in a gospel way, with a rich, beautiful voice that . will make anyone stop to listen. It comes naturally from years of hearing music in church and in her community. Intrinsically, she carries forth the African American musical traditions that go back to the spirituals, gospel, blues, and soul, even though she may be singing folk music influenced by the folk music of her generation Odetta, Richie Havens, Joan Baez, and Bob Dylan.
Her compelling music, unlike the traditional folk-blues of rural African Americans, is literally Folk Blues, drawing inspiration from both the blues heritage and the 1960 Folk music movement.
