Jazz guitarist Jackson FitzGerald performs weekly at Wally’s Jazz Café in Boston, Massachusetts and is the leader of the Jackson FitzGerald Group, which has performed his original compositions around the Northeast.
FitzGerald began playing guitar at the age of 12. His father gave him his record collection and those were his first teachers. In high school, he studied with Doug Maher and John Mills and performed at the Berklee High School Jazz Festival. He was awarded the outstanding soloist award for his division and this led to his scholarship at Berklee. FitzGerald is approaching his senior year at Berklee and has studied with Mick Goodrick, Tim Miller, Julian Lage, and Bret Willmott. He is the coauthor of the book Immoveable Shapes that will be released in the fall of 2013 under the supervision of Mick Goodrick.
