Internationally known composer, harpist and multi-instrumentalist William Jackson has been at the forefront of Scottish music for many years. In 1976 he was a founding member of the top Scottish band Ossian.

As a solo, performer his music is truly transporting. William's primary instrument is the Scottish harp, or clarsach, which he also teaches. He also plays wire strung harp, whistle, bouzouki and piano. 

In addition to performing, William has gained a substantial reputation as a composer, known for combining traditional and classical music, with such major works as The Wellpark Suite, St. Mungo, Inchcolm, and A Scottish Island to his credit. In 1999 his composition 'Corryvreckan' from the album Inchcolm was included on Fiona Ritchie's favourites collection, "The Best of The Thistle & Shamrock, Volume 1."

William's music is featured on many BBC and other Television productions; he is in demand as a composer of sensitive music, and increasingly as a producer. He directed and performed the music for "Battle of the Clans" for The History Channel, and produced and recorded the music for a new six part series about Scottish National Trust properties for Scottish Television. 

William's performance on harp, whistle and bodhran is featured on the soundtrack of the motion picture starring Robert Duval and Michael Keaton, which was filmed in Scotland. (Sounding Strings)
