Sumia Jackson recently appeared at The Palms with Jayme Stone's Folklife. She will be appearing there with her own band on Friday May 10th. That same morning, Sumia will drop by the KDRT studios for a live dirt with me - Folk Brother Bill - at 11AM. With a driving groove and a smooth, open sound, fiddler and tunestress Sumaia Jackson is a quintessential modern West Coast fiddler. Jackson weaves together Old-Time, Bluegrass, Swing, and Celtic traditions with an easy virtuosity and melodic elegance.
