Burnin' Moonlight / Bio

One thing is absolutely certain about the acoustic trio Burnin’ Moonlight - their love of music and snappy stage banter is infectious and engaging. With diverse musical backgrounds, they shift smoothly between spirited traditional bluegrass, rootsy folk, a little country, swing and downright lowdown blues. Scott Foxx lets it fly with fiery fiddle, stunning, hard-driving rhythm guitar and brilliant solos. Jim Roy cuts loose with his Piedmont fingerstyle guitar and rippin’ mandolin solos. Maggie Jackson’s bass and rhythm guitar keep a steady beat when she’s not pickin’ bluegrass and blues banjo. To top off the instrumental collage, Maggie and Jim share sweet, soulful vocal leads and harmonies that will make you smile too.

SCOTT FOXX, a lifetime professional musician, began playing for a living at 17 as a solo singer/songwriter and band musician, travelling the US, opening and touring with well-known artists. He currently plays with a variety of Bend bands, works as a studio/session musician, and teaches privately, at Realms School, and at the Cascade School of Music in Bend, OR.

MAGGIE JACKSON has been singing all her life – it began with folk tunes and four-part harmony with her sisters, eventually progressing to blues, bluegrass and jazz. Her instrument interest expanded from guitar to banjo and bass. Maggie has been a member of several Bend bands and occasionally plays as a guest artist. She teaches at Cascade School of Music and privately.

JIM ROY, a mandolin and dynamic Piedmont style blues guitar player enjoys singing soulful lead and harmony. He has played and performed acoustic blues since moving from New England to Santa Cruz , CA in 1979. His influences include Mississippi John Hurt, Merle Watson and Bill Monroe. Since moving to Central Oregon he has met musicians who have helped nurture his passion for blues and bluegrass.
