Jackie Bristow is pleased to announce she will be returning to her native shores in March with Australian musician and long-time collaborator Mark Punch.

From the Northern reaches of Leigh to the southern depths of Invercargill, Jackie’s tour culminates in Wellington and Auckland where she will open for legendary blues singer-songwriter Bonnie Raitt.

At once heartfelt and sophisticated, Jackie’s songs combine subtle but beautiful melodies and hooks that hypnotise the listener, then sticking around like the backbone of a real friend.

Her 2016 album Shot Of Gold was released in New Zealand and the U.S. and garnered high praise with American magazine Vents calling it ‘simply stunning’ and Graham Reid from NZ Herald awarding it 4 stars.

Jackie’s live performances captivate audiences, her soulful voice, well crafted songs and natural command of the room a testament to the commitment to her craft and to the many concert halls, festivals, and listening rooms she has played.

In 2016 Bristow was honoured to tour parts of the USA, opening for Tommy Emmanueland the Steve Miller Band and she has previously played support for such legendary names as Rick Springfield, Phoebe Snow, Bonnie Raitt and Art Garfunkel to name a few.

Don’t miss the opportunity to catch her in a town near you.
