Linda Jaxson Trio kicks off 2018 for HillGigs

March 10, 2018, 8:00pm - March 10, 2018, 11:00pm

Somebody said to me the other day, 'Linda Jaxson is a force of nature.' You're all going to love her and her Trio at HillGigs in March. She is a writer and singer. She has made five albums. Based in Glasgow, she has been performing in Scotland, Australia, Europe and Canada. Linda is renowned as a blues singer but also likes to work in and out of rock and country (with a little shadow of Jazz – sometimes.) If you've heard Linda Jaxson sing, you will recognise someone who sings close to the edge, while inviting you to share that experience. Her influences are many and cross many genres: Joni Mitchell, Rickie Lee Jones, Emmylou Harris to Leadbelly, Lightning Hopkins, Eric Bibb – and Led Zeppelin.
