Michael Jackman

(guitar, ukulele, dobro, vocals)

Michael studied clarinet, flute, and music composition, but his first love was guitar, that he first learned before his teenage voice broke in summer camp and in his high school’s after-school “adult education” class. Since the age of 17 he performed covers and original tunes solo and in bands in venues in and around New York, and then kicked around Nashville’s music scene for a while before moving to Louisville. He’s also a published poet and recently retired from the writing faculty at Indiana University Southeast, now devoting more time to music and writing.
