Jacqui Haggerty is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and songwriter whose background in various prestigious musical trainings has helped to streamline her career as a growing artist. Her latest musical project, The Fair and the Foul, has matured her approach to music in a calculated and beautifully complex way. Haggerty ensures that each song The Fair and the Foul produces is meticulously picked apart to provide each instrument with form-fitted, specific presentations for every song– a meticulousness that also solidifies a testament to her songwriting process. Haggerty’s tender and honest approach to songcraft creates a musical atmosphere that not only shares her own experiences, but invites the listener to experience their own alongside hers. Haggerty has succeeded in underpinning her folksy musical sound with controlled, soul-filled vocals, which she weaves confidently through each handcrafted musical arrangement. From the depth and instrumental solidarity of songs like “Wholeness” and “I Was Wrong,” to the buoyant musings of songs like “Take My Hand” and” Bottle,” Jacqui Haggerty is not just another folk artist norm.
