From our promo for this concert:
An Ohio native, Jones has performed throughout the US in a music career that began with him performing folk music in New Orleans, Boston, and Greenwich Village. He was introduced to country music while working on oil rigs in Texas, and in 1983 he won a songwriting competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival.
His new-found interest in country music took him first to Memphis, where he performed regularly at the Rum Boogie Cafe on Beale Street and then to Nashville, where he played often at the Bluebird Cafe and the Douglas Corner Cafe and wrote songs under exclusive contract with an independent publisher.
Dee Braxton Pelligrini, the Greenville-based fiddler, will open the program with several contemporary and original compositions.
