WHAT: Music Fest at Blue Bear Mountain - WHEN: Friday & Saturday Aug 2 & 3 - WHERE: Blue Bear Mountain Campground in Boone, NC

Mel Jones & His Bag of Bones

 

Jones, born and raised in Chapel Hill with the blues in his blood, toured as a drummer and singer performing rock ‘n’ roll and R & B for years in the Southeast before he discovered the hotbed of bluegrass and old- time music deep in the heart of Western North Carolina.

 

 

Picking up harmonica and venturing on to a new realm of music proved to be just another stopon the musical path for Jones. He formed the first Bag of Bones and the Piedmont blues duo Wicker and Jones in the early 1990s and launched his new career in acoustic music.  Now he finds himself soulfully connected to traditional blues combining all his musical influences to create well-rounded performances that prove blues, jazz and a little humor go a long way.

 

In the process, Jones has established himself as one of the region’s best harmonica players by winning numerous titles in regional festivals and earning a solid reputation for showmanship.  He’s also an accomplished songwriter, with five CDs to his credit and appearances at Merlefest, the International Blues Challenge, along with festivals and concerts throughout the region.
