School Holiday Performance Workshop with International Musician Jackie Bristow
QT based Turn Up The Music Trust feel privileged to have Jackie tutoring these songwriting workshops and being an inspiration to our young QT singer songwriters.
She has opened for stars like Chris Isaak, Boz Skaggs, Bonnie Raitt, Foreigner, Tommy Emmanuel and The Steve Miller Band among others.
New Zealand born, Nashville based singer-songwriter Jackie Bristow, began singing and writing songs at an early age in Gore and first performed with her sister in their school church choir. The 'Bristow Sisters' toured the South Island of New Zealand making a name for themselves. Jackie's talent and songwriting skills saw her establish herself in the United States where she has been living and performing since 2005.
Jackie has continued writing and performing in North America and around the world with several albums under her name. She was on tour in New Zealand (happily for us) with her Blue Moon Rising tour when Lockdown prevented her return to Nashville.
