FRIDAY APRIL 11

KRISSY & PETER JACKSON

Fiddle-centric folk 

from foot-stomping to heart-wrenching and everything in-between.

Performing with husband Peter on keys and harmony, Krissy creates beautiful music that is a sensory delight. Their ability to read the room and adjust their set list accordingly makes for more than just entertainment: an experience that engages the audience right up until the final note… songs, tunes, and harmonies that fill the soul and are performed with first-class musicianship.

Krissy Jackson’s fiddle-centric folk takes the listener on a musical journey, from foot-stomping to heart-wrenching and everything in between.

Described as “an extraordinary musician and heartfelt performer,” Krissy’s music dances with melody and tone, honouring the historical depth of folk music while still making it her own. 

Through her voice and fiddle, Krissy connects deeply with her audience. Creating compelling folk music that transcends genre and stylistic boundaries.

Have fiddle. Will travel!

Keyboardist and harmony singer Peter Jackson is described as a player “whose quiet brilliance and intuition hold things together beautifully and sensitively.” 

A highly sought-after fiddler immersed in New Zealand’s folk scene, Krissy has performed previously at many festivals with The Frank Burkitt Band, Hot Diggity, Waitai and Adam McGrath, and performed with Peter on the Balladeer stage.

She’s got a heart for a fiddle and a fiddle for a heart.

She’s got a heart for a fiddle
and a fiddle for a heart.

“She was and is a sensation to watch and even more of a sensation to listen to. Those notes, those notes that make your neck elongate, your body inch upward, your hands taking an involuntary migration to the heart. Notes of such exquisite, primal purity. Or she just makes you pound your feet, clap your hands, and then before you know it you are dancing.” 

Mary Kippenberger, Te Rangi Festival

"The superior vena cava is the the thing that carries the blood to the heart, the aorta is the thing that takes that blood and sends it back to the body, a magical interplay of wonder and exchange. If music is the heart turned to sound, it makes me wonder if maybe Krissy Jackson has more of these blood pumping’ tubes than the normal person. 

She plays like it, breathing it all in, sending it all out. Song after song, heart after heart, never fazed by genre or bounded by what’s ‘expected’ she’s just going for the real part of it, whatever that is and wherever it may be. Carrying the songs, the players she’s on stage with, the music, the energy, the muscle, the blood. Making oxygen, making energy, making heart, making every listener believe that every song is worth something and by proxy those listeners must be worth something also. That’s heart. That’s magic. She’s got a heart for a fiddle  and a fiddle for a heart. What a wonder.” 

Adam McGrath, New Zealand folk icon
