George Jackson & Rachel Baiman are a multi-instrumentalist old time and Americana duo from Nashville, Tennessee.
George and Rachel have both appeared at Whangateau before, George as a member of The Company and Missy Raines Trio, and Rachel as half of the Ten String Symphony.
Rachel Baiman’s June 2017 album Shame was featured on NPR’s “Songs We Love”, called a “Rootsy Wake-up Call” by Folk Alley, and was nominated for Americana Album of the Year in the Independent Music Awards. She is a winner of the 2018 IBMA Instrumental Recorded Performance of the Year Award. Joining Rachel is New Zealand native George Jackson, who was born to musician parents in Christchurch. Jackson has a degree in Jazz from Queensland Conservatorium of music, and spent years on the Australian Festival Circuit with bands “The Company”, and “One Up, Two Down”. An avid student of American fiddle styles, Jackson eventually made his way to Nashville, TN where he now lives and works with various bands.
