The Jones Boys came and played at our community tree planting event. They were fantastic – lively and jolly music that lifted the spirits of all our volunteers. We received lots of lovely comments about how good the music was. Thank you for joining our event.

I would like to thank The Jones Boys for their great contribution to our festival. On an unusually cold and wet day amidst our incredibly hot summer, when the acts had persevered in a marquee with an audience who had to put up with rain and cold all day and were on the wane, The Jones Boys came along like a breath of fresh air. They finished the day off with a mix of music, ranging from toe-tapping tunes to quirky, humorous songs. The virtuosity of Sam’s box playing is without question and Gordon’s accompaniment make these two a duo well worth considering for booking for festivals and concerts in addition to barn-dances and similar events.

In 2017 and 2018 The Jones Boys performed at the Blean Music Festival. Their musical menu and skilful playing of traditional music from Ireland, England, Scotland, Brittany and beyond was hugely appreciated and enjoyed by the large audience present, who come along annually to appreciate the musical gifts and talent of the stage musicians and their music, who give their time to support our Village Hall.

For several years now we have promoted The Jones Boys at our Redbridge Green Fair and Redbridge Music Lounge club nights and festivals. They have provided a unique blend of traditional and original instrumental and vocal folk music with an expertise in their playing a variety of instruments and vocal styles. They also have an engaging rapport with the audience informing them of the origins and often unusual stories behind the music. Their repertoire is wide and will suit obviously a folk line up but equally we have found that The Jones Boys fit into a multi-genre music bill and are well received by a new audience to folk music.

The Jones Boys are a solid folk act, mixing great tunes with traditional songs and are an asset to any folk stage line-up. Sam’s fast-fingered accordion is amazing to behold and enhanced by Gordon’s strong accompaniment on mandola.

The Jones Boys are highly accomplished musicians who are serious about folk music.
