This summer, the singer songwriter played her first show on our side of the Atlantic and now you can relive it.

Earlier this year, brilliant singer songwriter Jackie Venson travelled from her home in Austin, TX - aka the Live Music Capital of the World® - to our side of the Atlantic for her first ever performance in the UK. 

Taking place just around the corner from DIY HQ, at Two Tribes Brewery, the show - also hosted by Visit Austin - saw Jackie impress with her intricate guitar work, multi-faceted performance and array of bluesy, rock-tinged tracks. And now, just a few weeks later, you can relive some of her eclectic set for yourself.

Watch our round-up of Jackie’s performance and get a real taste of her one-woman tour de force below.
