Barry Jackson is well-known to many on the London blues scene. A veteran blues player who likes old guitars, he started playing guitar in the 1950s and is still trying to master it. Over the years he’s played solo, and with many, many musicians, none of whom are famous, with the execption of Champion Jack Dupree. He claims not to know any songs recorded after 1959, but that’s just affectation. His repertoire combines reworked twentieth century blues songs with his own material.
