When you couple authenticity with the talent of a truly exceptional nature: songwriting, storytelling, multi-instrumentalist, award-winning educator, and an encyclopedic knowledge of the history of African American folk music, including blues, spiritual, and slave songs … its players and styles … you get the Reverend Robert B. Jones, Sr. from Detroit, MI.  Read more…

“Thank you for an exquisite performance at The Library of Congress for the American Folklife Center. From the moment you started singing, you captivated the audience. With masterful storytelling and incredible musicianship, you created a completely transporting concert. It was both exhilarating and very moving. Thank you for sharing your stories, music and compassion with us.” – Theadocia Austen, Library of Congress, Public Events Coordinator

Reverend Robert Jones, Sr. is an inspirational singer, songwriter, storyteller and self-taught award-winning multi-instrumentalist. He plays guitar, harmonica, mandolin, banjo and fiddle using folk, blues, spirituals and other American Roots music to champion the history, beauty and power of our shared culture.

A lifelong Detroiter, Rev. Jones has been performing professionally for nearly 30 years throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. He has entertained and educated audiences of all ages in schools, colleges, libraries, union halls, prisons, churches and civil rights organizations. His deep love for traditional African American and American music is shared in live performances that interweave timeless stories with original and traditional songs. At the heart of his message is the belief that our cultural diversity tells a story that should celebrate, not just tolerate.

Acclaimed photographer James Fraher writes about Robert: “Perhaps the world’s most highly educated blues musician, an ordained minister, a longtime DJ, and a living encyclopedia of blues history, the Reverend Robert Jones is comfortable among juke joint loud talkers, fancy-hatted church ladies, and PhDs alike.”

I am emailing to send a very BIG thank you to Rev. Robert Jones for his presentation to the Harlan community in Birmingham last month.  The feedback that I’ve received from staff and students alike is tremendous.  I’ve been told that it’s the most enjoyable presentation that teachers have seen…ever.  Students are still recalling songs that they heard and information that Mr. Jones shared with them.– Harlan Elem, Birmingham MI
