Texas Artist Series: Jackie Venson

Bullock Texas State History Museum

Be a part of an intimate performance from the home of musician and songwriter, Jackie Venson to kick off this season of the Texas Artist Series showcase.

Jackie Venson is a multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter known far and wide for her complexly beautiful music and blazing guitar skills. Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Jackie has traveled the world playing to massive crowds both as a headliner and as support for major acts. With the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, the cancellation of her entire tour schedule, and the wave of social change sweeping across the country, Jackie committed herself to releasing more music than ever before, connecting with her fans directly and speaking up about the change she wanted to see in her city and country. On April 20th, Jackie released a new EP titled jackie the robot vol 1 composed entirely of remixes that re-imagine Jackie’s critically acclaimed catalog, and showcases her growth as both a musician and producer. This fall, Jackie will be releasing her next studio album Vintage Machine, her first studio follow up to 2019’s Joy. Music from Vintage Machine will be featured heavily on Jackie’s upcoming taping for Austin City Limits’ 46th season. With the uncertainty of the times we’re living in, one thing holds true for Jackie Venson, she’s going to play her music, speak her truth, and spread as much joy as she can doing it.

Tickets for this event are free for Bullock Museum members and $5 for general public. Your ticket purchase directly supports the Bullock Museum's exhibitions and educational programming.
