Jackie is currently writing for an exciting new album to be recorded in the coming months at Rockfield. The album is a collaboration with fellow musicians Eliza Marshall (flute), Donal Rogers (guitar), Catrin Finch (harp), Robert Irvine (cello), Lydia Lowndes Northcott (viola), Joby Burgess (drums and percussion), and Kuljit Bhamra (tabla).
The album will be called 'Freedom to Roam' and the aim is to celebrate what we have in common as a global community at a time of mass migration and polarisation, seeking interconnection, and remembering that we live in a world of infinite possibilities.
