Folk Blues. This is what defines Veronika Jackson's music. Originally from St. Petersburg (FL), she's a Piedmont style guitarist and singer who with three albums to her credit, stands as a faithful representative of traditional country blues, without any concessions to refresh contents but with an amazing fidelity and credibility. Jackson is not a great guitarist, she uses the instrument only in the rhythmic facet, but she's a tremendous singer, vocalizes lyrics with deep involvement and permeates every song with honesty and empathy. Truly a great album.
