Canadian singer-songwriter Lynn Jackson is slated to appear at The Cedar Creek Cafe on Thursday (June 6) in Winlaw.

An authenticity runs through Canadian singer-songwriter Lynn Jackson’s music that reflects a deep commitment to telling stories that ring true with listeners. 

Combine this with her gentle voice, rich instrumentation and sweet melodies and you get a sound that is roots-Americana with a hint of folk-pop.

Having shared stages with Ron Sexsmith, Fred Eaglesmith and Luke Doucet, Jackson just finished her 6th studio album Down in the Dust (Busted Flat Records, Fall 2012). Down in the Dust sees  Jackson take her cues from Lucinda Williams, Kathleen Edwards and Eliza Gilkyson, using her ‘whiskey and honey’ voice to mix her timeless melodies while spinning yarns about love, loss and everyday people.  

Jackson is again starting a Western tour from Regina to Vancouver Island, with a stop in Winlaw.

An Eastern tour is in the works for Fall 2013. As audiences warm to her soulful storytelling style, Jackson is solidifying her place as one of the most original and compelling voices on the Canadian folk music scene.
