Robert B. Jones - BRUCE HARKNESS

  • Robert B. Jones
Known widely throughout the Detroit Metro area as the host of WDET's Saturday morning blues show, "Blues From the Lowlands," Robert Jones is currently the city's only one-man blues band. Although other area artists perform solo on occasion, Jones is the only one to adhere strictly to that format – and no one can touch him. Combining a wonderful sense of humor with an exceptionally broad knowledge of blues history and an entertaining storytelling style that both rivals and compliments his musical abilities, Jones carries the old-style Mississippi front porch Delta tradition to an entirely new level.
