After four years of successful multi-day storytelling festivals, Charleston Tells will extend the power of performance through a quarterly concert series. This exciting transition begins March 17, when Charleston Tells Concert Series presents an Evening with Robert Jones.
Robert Jones is an inspirational storyteller and musician who celebrates the history, humor and power of American Roots music. He entertains audiences throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe with a repertoire that blends timeless stories with original and traditional songs. An award-winning multi-instrumentalist, Jones is accomplished at guitar, harmonica, mandolin, banjo and fiddle.
"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."
