Jackie & Resa, known by some as two-thirds of M.S.G. Acoustic Blues Trio, have over the years developed their own unique sound. Jackie the songwriter/multi-instrumentalist and Resa the arranger/vocalist, together they bring a distinctive blend of creativity to the acoustic blues community.
In 2010, Jackie and Resa were accepted into the Library of Congress "Americana Women: Roots Musicians - Women's Tales and Tunes" as part of the MusicBox Project collection (some of which has been catalogued in the American Folklife Center).
