Edward Jackson

About a year and a half ago, Edward Jackson left San Francisco to seek his fortunes tap dancing in Australia.  So I was very surprised to see Edward today standing around the cable car turnaround holding court with a few admirers.  He told me that he had been back about a week and is living somewhere on Sixth Street.  When I asked him if he would be staying, he said that he would be staying in the city for the foreseeable future.

"I need the community and the community needs me," he said as he packed his belongings.  Apparently I had missed his performance by only a couple of minutes.  It is good to see him, since I think the city needs more artists and street performers.  However, seeing him means that he did not do well financially in Sydney, Australia over the last year and a half.  I certainly hope that he prospers being back in the city.  I for one will do my part by giving a couple of bucks each time I see him.  If you like his dancing you should do the same.

  1. Edward Jackson is amazing….i’ve watched him several times and I hope he does well in SF. i had just read this article and was unaware he’d left, then returned…it’s been a while since i’ve stopped by, I hope he’s still here with us. This man deserves a little love from the city for the beauty he brings to it.
