William (Billy) Jackson has been at the forefront of Scottish music for decades! He was a founding member of the group Ossian who toured America and Europe extensively and recorded several albums. He is a multi-instrumentalist, (harps, pipes, piano, flutes and whistles…), and excellent composer. His compositions were featured in the Ossian recordings, and also in his solo albums. His composition 'Land Of Light' emerged favourite after a blind tasting by the judges, the winning entry in the popular Song For Scotland competition organised by the Herald.
