I was very excited to get the opportunity to record a new CD with mom, Ramona Jones, and the many family and friends that we have worked with through the years. Many of whom worked with us at the “Grandpa Jones Family Dinner Theater, in Mountain View, Arkansas. Also, some new friends that mom has performed with over the last few years in Nashville. She is an exceptional old time fiddle player and I am so proud to be able to record with her again.
The CD will have over 20 songs/tunes on it featuring: Ramona Jones on Fiddle, Mandolin, Vocals
Alisa Jones Wall on Hammered Duclimer and Vocals, Ron Wall on Autoharp and Vocals, Ruth McClain on Upright Bass and Vocals, Greg Davis on Rythem Guitar, Banjo and Vocals, Danny Dozier on Travis Style Guitar, Larry Sledge on Mandolin and Vocals, Greg Moody on Mandolin, Lead and Rythem Guitar and Vocals, and myself, Mark Jones on Banjo and 5-String Dobro.
I am always amazed when I play with these guys at the amount of talent that they have. It is not only easy to work with these guys but also lots of fun since we have worked together for so many years. It is like coming home anytime we are together. We always have lots of catching up to do. Every year these guys are good enough to come to Mountain View, Arkansas to the Grandpa Jones tribute that is held on Labor Day weekend at the Ozark Folk Center in honor of my dad.
I believe that the new CD will be entitled “Falling Leaves” after the song that dad wrote. Hopefully we will be able to get it released before too long. Look for it on this site. We will have it here for you as soon as it is available.
Good talking to you. Come back and see me soon!
