Jackson Lynch is a songster based in New York City who plays old-time, country blues, guitar and fiddle. He draws from the vast reservoir of pre-blues floating verses, good spirited old-time tunes, roots music, and murder ballads of old. Performing the traditional musics of rural America, he seeks to bring these mysterious sounds of the nineteenth century and beyond to the fore of audiences' ears, mouths and minds.
