New Zealand born transplanted to the United States with a guitar, a suitcase and a song. Jackie Bristow travels light but packs a heavy punch.
Jackie has had the honour to be the opening act for many of her musical heros. Opening for Bonnie Raitt in New Zealand on the 2013 Slipstream tour was a dream come true and internationally-acclaimed guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel 2011. Jackie and Tommy played to sold-out theatre's across the America.
Jackie live performance has captivated audiences. One reviewer of her tour opening for Tommy Emmanuel wrote: "Opening for a musical giant like Emmanuel would seem a daunting task, but Bristow was relaxed as her soulfully-seductive melodies reverberated within the auditorium. Her beautiful voice and earnest songs resonated with the audience, and they applauded her eagerly. Near the end of the show, Bristow joined Emmanuel on stage for an amazing duet that received a standing ovation.
