Album Notes
"She subsumes precision, imagination, and high intelligence into a hypnotic sound that circles the room with a golden cord of sound." –Darol Anger


Scenes and stories from Jackson’s twenty years of
music-making are the inspiration from which this album
grew. Trading tunes in the meadows of Big Sur’s majestic
mountains, watching—fiddles in hand—as lightning storms
streak across the Tennessee plains, romping through the
Santa Cruz redwoods chased by a band of wild fiddlers,
the smell of coffee through the dappled morning sun on a
fiddle camp morning, fueling bleary-eyed musicians who’d
stayed up half the night….

This album is full-to-the-brim with dance tunes inspired by
giddy wee-hour jams, pieces shaped by clouds on a crisp
March day in Halifax, and tunes written in ghost towns in
New Mexico’s high desert. This collection celebrates the
strength of community, the power of returning home with
a heart full of new adventures, and a love for the music
that brings us all together.
