Preston Jackson (gtr) at Bingo Country Ceilidh in Charlottetown, 2006; L-R: Attwood O'Connor, fiddle; Jackson, Theo Weigers, drums

Biography

Preston Jackson came along one evening with fiddler Attwood O’Connor to the Ceilidh Kitchen Party at Bingo Country (informally known as the Bingo Country Ceilidh), held at Bingo Country Hall on Riverside Drive in Charlottetown.

Solo harmonica playing was once a common feature of Island musical get togethers, and in a pinch Islanders would dance square sets to harmonica accompaniment.

As yet there is little biographical information on Jackson. He appeared to be roughly O’Connor’s age and it seemed reasonable to assume that the two lived near one another.
