Alongside his songwriting, Jackson also runs workshops and shows, which feature a number of unusual instruments (hammered dulcimer, melodeon, concertina, just to name a few!), well-known songs and toe-tapping tunes from various cultures to encourage everyone to be an integral part of the performance.
