Linda Jaxson Blues Project

was a six-piece band which rocks up the blues and has audiences on their feet and just letting loose. Featured a lot of guitar licks |{Paul Ross and John McLarty) and some great saxophone, this band know how to build the night up in a real crescendo of blues to rock. Bass player, Jimmy Johnson also adds some soulful vocals.

The band got audiences really in the groove at Montrose Music festival last year so look out for this illusive combination: Alan Thomson on bass, Morph on Guitar, Jim Drummond on drums, Jack Webb on keys and Gordon Dickson on sax.

The River Sisters

3 to 5 women singers who join in harmony but who also lead on various Gospel and soul songs. This is power at its best.

Vocal Tuition

Linda does individual singing tuition in a recording studio where after going through breathing techniques, vocal chord strengthening exercises, there is a move to ‘style’ depending on the genre of choice. By using the studio, participants get the chance to perfect mic use and hear themselves working through to that ‘result’.
