& BOO HEWERDINE
Two masters of song JILL JACKSON and BOO HEWERDINE are finally hitting the road together.
A musical and personal friendship was discovered when Jill enlisted Boo to produce her album ‘Are We There Yet?’ back in 2018. The musical synergy was instant. A tour which has been almost five years in the making, touring the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, exploring some of the most culturally enriched parts of the country to share stories and bring each other’s songs to life.
Jill is one of Scotland’s leading singer-songwriters and an acclaimed artist within the thriving international Americana music scene. Her sensitive and sympathetic storytelling, heart-rending vocals, and sheer love of Americana music, have earned her a loyal fan base around the world and not surprisingly, drawn comparisons to the likes of Brandi Carlile and Joni Mitchell. A natural-born storyteller and award-winning artist, Jill effortlessly marries swinging American charm with Scottish heart.
For over 30 years Boo Hewerdine has been considered one of the UK's finest singer-songwriters. As lead singer of seminal band The Bible, through to his subsequent solo work and long-time collaboration with the incredible Eddi Reader, he has become something of a national treasure. He is in demand as a writer, producer and performer. Over a hundred of his songs have been covered by the likes of KD Lang, Kris Drever, Chris Difford, Heidi Talbot and Hannah Rarity. His last album ‘Before’ was recorded with supreme Danish multi-instrumentalist Gustaf Ljunggren. It garnered multiple five star reviews.

“Boo is one of the greatest (and busiest) songwriter performers in the business”
“There are singers who can make the emotions rise in your heart, Jackson is one of them”
