VENUE: Susquehanna Art Museum
Legendary 6 and 12 string guitarist brings his American Primitive style of guitar to the Lehr Gallery at the Susquehanna Art Museum.
Glenn's album, "Fleeting" was named as one of the "Top 10 Solo Guitar Records of 2016" by NPR.
Premier Guitar Magazine writes, "Whether he’s channeling ecstatic visions of his youth—dappled with hazy vestiges of Jimi Hendrix, Captain Beefheart, Harry Partch, Tim Buckley, and Can—or paying direct tribute to his friend and mentor, John Fahey, Jones can make a guitar sing with an almost otherworldly expressiveness that only comes from years of practice, dedication, and experimentation"
Glenn is touring in support of his new album "Vade Mecum" which will be released on Thrill Jockey Records this year.
Also on the bill is Jen Starsinic, a musician from Harrisburg, now residing in Nashville, Tennessee.

...establishes the guitar aficionado as nearly being in a world of his own as far as technical prowess and emotional resonance goes... a wonderful and mesmerizing album of masterful guitar work from one of contemporary music's finest... a graceful, nuanced, tranquil affair...
...captivating... Jones' slide work on the resonator guitar sounds especially meaty, and when all six, and sometimes 12, strings start chiming as he fingerpicks, the effect is shimmering.
Mike Shanley, Harp
Besides his determined, dexterous finger picking, 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, Boston Globe
