Lynn Jackson plays folk filled ballads

 She stood alone on the barren stage, singing songs from her past six CDs and telling stories.

 As expected, a lot of her music came from her most recent CD “Down In The Dust,” including show and CD highlight ‘Miss Sinaloa,’ which she prefaced with a story about drug war related kidnappings and violence in Mexican border towns like Juarez. Another new song  “Poker Face” was a highlight.

While most of her music was of the ’60s acoustic singer songwriter variety, like Joni Mitchell, she also branched out into a little jazz for a song or two.

“I’m going to break way from the sad ballady songs I’ve been singing tonight,” she smiled.

  There were a lot of highlights. A 2010 song abut a passive aggressive ex-coworker was a highlight as was the title track of her 2010 CD ”Coming Down.” She ended her show with another older song called the Devil” about doing irresponsible things.
