George Jackson – Banjo

George Jackson grew up in New Zealand, on the sound of folk and bluegrass fed in wholesome doses by his musician parents. Moving to Australia as a teen George graduated in 2012 from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music with a degree in Jazz Violin Performance. As a banjoist George is a winner of both the Australian Banjo Championship and the Rockygrass Banjo Contest and has been an instructor at the Australian Banjo Conference since 2012. Moving to Nashville in 2016 George is currently a member of “Missy Raines and the New Hip” on banjo and fiddle, and spends his spare time brewing beer and writing tunes.
