Jill Jackson and Rab Noakes met in the mid-’90s when Rab produced The Brand New Opry for BBC Radio Scotland. Jill, then a teenager, appeared as a guest on the show and they have been friends and colleagues ever since. Across those decades they have now worked together often, on stage, on radio and on record.
This collaboration, spanning the generations, features a wide range of songs, self-penned and interpretations. The show is an engaging event which reflects their shared abilities, attitudes and enthusiasm with great singing and musicianship.
Rab says “I love singing and I love singing with other people. Jill is one of the best for me as she also loves to sing. We communicate across our generations to make something that’s unique to us”.
