The Boston Globe calls Glenn Jones “the best guitarist you never heard of.” A 30-year devotee of the American Primitive tradition of acoustic steel-string guitarists, Jones has been playing guitar since age 14. He formed Boston psych-rock band Cul de Sac in 1989 and led it on a 20-year journey, resulting in nine albums and noted collaborations with guitarist John Fahey and Damo Suzuki of the legendary German group Can. Jones’ 2007 solo release Against Which the Sea Continually Beats is considered a significant addition to the solo guitar canon; his Barbecue Bob in Fishtown was one of Wire magazine’s 50 Best Albums of 2009.

“...Jones uses half-capos and alternative tunings to create incandescent sitar-like sounds... these shimmering musical meditations evoke a wondrous tranquility that's simply soulful.” -Linda Laban, The Boston Globe

Lac La Belle is an acoustic duo from Detroit that juxtaposes the early decades of recorded rural American music with a decaying Rustbelt aesthetic. A tradition is re-imagined - or maybe just resumed - in the ‘future-rustic’ swirl of accordion, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, and resonator guitar. Jennie Knaggs (accordion/mandolin/ukulele/guitar/vocals) and Nick Schillace (banjo/mandolin/resonator guitar/vocals) are joined by Serge Van Der Voo, upright bass, for this performance.
