Jackson Creek
 About us...

"Jackson Creek" performs for festivals, parties, community events, and dances throughout central Florida. Check the performance schedule page and come join us!  

Joe Waller, founder of the group, labels the music performed by Jackson Creek as "fiddle-folk-grass." It is a dynamic blend of folk music (both covers and Joe's fantastic songs,) mild bluegrass music, and many styles of fiddle tunes, with a little gospel, western music, and civil war period music depending upon what is requested for the event.  There IS something for everyone! We want you to enjoy yourselves!  Clap your hands!  Sing along... and please.... get up and dance!!!  

We are just as comfortable playing for sedate art openings and weddings as we are  bringing a caller and providing an exciting contra dance/barn dance for your event!!!


Joe Waller is the founder and leader of the Jackson Creek String Band.   His strong vocal capabilities take the listener from the heart of bluegrass into the soul of folk and the touching lament of the Texas cowboy! His solid rhythm guitar holds us together! Joe's focus is on bringing the audience into the performance with sing-alongs and shared musical reminiscence. Write to Joe to plan your event with the Jackson Creek String Band.

Katie Bailey Waller,  fiddler from Enterprise, was classically trained on the viola and violin, but is now having a wonderful time playing fiddle!!! Katie won 2nd place in the Old Time Fiddle Music Championship 1999 and 2nd in the State Twin Fiddle Contest at White Spring 2001. Joe and Katie both teach workshops and  fiddle classes at the Sunshine State Acoustic Music Camp and Will McLean Festival and the Florida Folk Festival.  
Do YOU want to learn fiddle tunes?  Be sure to get a copy of our fiddle "Training Wheels in D" CD!

Joe and Katie are happy to be joined by Diane Collar Russell - vocals and flute, and Bill Dollahite - bass!  Together we are... Jackson Creek!!!

We would love to perform for your event!
