Christine Lavin, singer-songwriter and comedienne extraordinaire, comments about Jackie’s playing ~
“I never thought I’d find a violinist on a level with Robin Batteau — but Jackie Damsky — girl, you got it goin’ on. Your playing is soulful and sensitive — when you came onstage you brought a special ‘lightness’ that everyone felt. What a night — thank you so much — can’t wait to work with you again!”
