Originally from England and now living in Leonia, New Jersey, David Jones has a large repertoire of folksong from both sides of the Atlantic. He has traveled widely, singing at festivals, concert halls, clubs, maritime museums and colleges, presenting songs from the great days of sail, Music Hall favorites, traditional ballads, and the works of contemporary writers. He sings both a capella and with guitar accompaniment and involves his audience in refrains and choruses ranging from boisterous to sentimental.
David Jones is also an accomplished actor. He has played the part of the great sailor Joshua Slocum in Sailing Alone, and has sung and provided narration for a number of Public Broadcasting productions, including A Prairie Home Companion, Africans in America, and Simple Gifts.Find more information about David Jones at http://www.davidjones.ws/.
