Jackie Bristow plays The Taihape Musicians Club
The Taihape Musicians Club comes to life on Tuesday 15 May with a performance from Nashville-based Jackie Bristow.
Originally from Gore, Jackie recently relocated to Nashville Tennessee, where she writes, records and performs when she’s home from the road.
Captivating audiences with her soulful voice, well-crafted songs and natural live command, Jackie has star power. She exudes warmth and a commitment to her craft, which she has polished to gold in the many concert halls, festivals, and listening rooms she has played.
Over the past year, Bristow has had the honour of opening for many of her international heroes including Bonnie Raitt, Tommy Emmanuel, the Steve Miller Band, Foreigner and in past years Marc Cohn, John Oates, Art Garfunkel, Madeline Peryoux, Phoebe Snow, Daniel Lanois and Jimmy Webb.
Her 2016 album Shot Of Gold was released in New Zealand and the U.S. and garnered high praise. American magazine ‘Vents’ called it 'simply stunning.’ Graham Reid from NZ Herald gave it 4 stars.
This is a show not to be missed!
Tickets available via Eventfinda

….Bristow finds her artistic voice, shades of Karla Bonoff or Bonnie Raitt at their most meaningful and melodic where the method of delivery is as effective as the material itself." - Country Standard Time (USA), Kevin Oliver.
