Jackson Evans

Jackson Evans Mansion on Forsth Park gig posterJackson was born in northern Utah and began playing guitar at the age of twelve.  At fifteen, he attended a concert given by his first teacher, Corey Christiansen.  The experience left such an impression he decided to dedicate himself to a career as a jazz guitarist.

Now based in Savannah, Georgia, Jackson is known throughout the southeast as an in-demand band leader, composer, arranger and accompanist.  In addition to organizing several regional tours he has performed in concert series and festivals including an appearance as a featured guest at the Savannah Jazz Festival.

Jackson holds a BM from Utah State University where, as an undergraduate student, he had the opportunity to teach beginning guitar courses. His reputation as a personable and patient teacher has made him the most sought after guitar instructor in coastal Georgia and South Carolina.   Jackson has taught and developed curriculum for community programs, conducted clinics and seminars, and currently maintains a full private studio of more than thirty students.  He is also a published songwriter and lyricist and performs widely with his wife, vocalist/bassist Maggie Evans.
