Amanda Jackson Trio 

Biography

The Amanda Jackson Trio grew out of friendship that remains at the heart of the band. Amanda Jackson (vocals), Dale McKie (guitar and harmonica), and Todd MacLean (guitar, piano, and sax) have an obvious connection with each other. They also have the ability to make immediate connections to their audiences, in large part because of their honest, compelling songs. The trio’s songs get to the core of the human experience with an emphasis on social awareness. Delivered with perfect musical execution and Amanda’s powerful vocals, their music feeds the soul and lifts the heart. The band’s original songs are lyrically rich, and their covers are creatively reimagined. After the release of their debut recording, Fire in the Blue (2017), the band caught the attention of many in the music industry; the recording was met with awards and nominations from Music PEI and the East Coast Music Association and earned The Amanda Jackson Trio a place in the CBC Searchlight competition’s national top 10. The band performed in 2018 at Folk Harbour’s summer concert series, and 2019 marks their first Festival appearance.
