27 Jan Reverend Robert Jones, Sr., Heading for Mariposa

robertJonesSinger, storyteller and multi-instrumentalist, Reverend Robert Jones, Sr., uses folk, blues, spirituals and other American Roots music to champion the beauty and power of our shared culture.

A lifelong Detroiter, he has been performing professionally for nearly 30 years for festivals, schools, civil rights organizations and churches.

Rev. Jones grew up immersed in a wide variety of music, especially the blues.

By his mid-twenties, he was hosting an award-winning radio show called Blues From The Lowlands.

Although he is a respected traditional acoustic blues musician, Rev. Jones considers his greatest honor to be his call to the gospel ministry.

Now, he’s making his first Mariposa Folk Festival appearance.
