Jacqui Haggerty Musician, vocalist and songwriter

It didn’t take long for the Fair and the Foul to reach its fundraising goal on Kickstarter. The local band, which plays folk music with rock and jazz influences, plays music by vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Jacqui Haggerty, who has been a musician since 7th grade. After graduating from UNCG with a degree in film and video production, Haggerty works as a freelance videographer and editor but has been spending more time recently focused on her band. The upcoming debut album is 60 percent done, and the funds from Kickstarter will cover the recording and mastering costs. She has performed by herself numerous times and prefers using her friend’s Martin acoustic guitar. “Two years ago I mustered up the courage to ask other people to play my songs,” she said. “I found some people who are on the same page and really believe in my music.”

To preorder the album or support the band, visit projects/thefairandthefoul/the-fair-and-the-foul-debut-album/. Contact Jacqui at for her videographer work.
