Keeping Curious with A Different Thread

A Different Thread brings together three unexpected collaborators; Singer-songwriter Robert Jackson from Lichfield Staffordshire, Isaac Collier, a classically trained cellist from the Yorkshire Moors, and Alicia Best a singer/fiddle player from North Carolina.

The trio have their own contemporary take on what Americana music is: They play what they are calling ‘British-Americana’ pulling from the roots of traditional American and British music alike, weaving together aspects of country, blues and folk with classical undertones and a hint of bluegrass.

In this episode we discussed Rob’s journey away from Illustration where I first met him, to a more collaborative creative practice. We also discussed the limitations of classical training vs. being self taught but mainly we talk about music, inspiration and living a good life.
