John Jackson (February 24, 1924 – January 20, 2002) was a Piedmont blues musician; his music did not become primary until his accidental "discovery" by folklorist Chuck Perdue in the 1960s. His easy-swinging guitar and strongly accented singing were first heard outside of his locality on the early 1960s albums for Arhoolie. He visited Europe several times, played at folk festivals, and also recorded for Rounder and Alligator Records.
