Julian Jackson

Primary Instrument: Harmonica

Julian Jackson

Julian Jackson was brought up in a musical family in Liverpool, so Julian's choice of a career in music was no surprise. Whilst studying at Music College in Liverpool, Julian reigned for 3 years as the Hohner British Harmonica Champion. Julian moved to London to become the only Harmonica player to ever study at both The Guildhall School Of Music & The Royal Academy of Music.

Julian played in the touring quintet of Julian Josephs who commented “his playing has great soul and great melodic content and logic”.
