& THE REPUTATIONS
Maletta Jackson writes country/folk-influenced songs of love, death and heartbreak, guaranteed to melt the coldest of cold cold hearts. Backed up by her legendary band the Reputations – assembled from the finest musicians to be found in London’s most nefarious dive bars and honky-tonks – Maletta's distinctive sound combines guitar, banjo, bass and lapsteel to bring a slice of Nashville to London.
The Reputations are Will 'Banjo' Dawson (banjo), Richard Holden (bass) and Paul Seacroft (lapsteel). They are currently scattered across the four corners of London but come together to perform wherever the wind takes them and the drinks are free.
Maletta was born on the Thames in a Mississippi steamer in 1927.
