William Jackson has been at the forefront of Scottish music for over thirty years. In 1976, he was a founding member of the top Scottish band Ossian, described by The Boston Globe as "a gem in the same league as Ireland's Chieftans." William's main instrument is the Scottish harp or clarsach, which he plays and teaches. He also plays the wire-strung harp, flute, whistle, uillean pipes, and piano. William has a close involvement with major Scottish orchestras in Scotland, and his music is features on many BBC and other television productions. He was trained as a music therapist at the London Guildhall School of Music, so much of his time is spent working in this field, as well as composing and performing.
William wrote an article for Sylvia's monthly e-newsletter, telling about his harp journey. You can read the article here.
