FERNANDO JONES’ BLUES CAMP ITALY

SUMMER 2016

 

The Blues Kids Foundation proudly present Fernando Jones' Blues Camp next summer in Europe. 

ABOUT THE PRESENTER

Fernando Jones is a Columbia College Chicago (the nation’s premier performing arts and media school) faculty member and Blues Ensemble director. He's also an American Bluesman, educator, songwriter and scholar. Born to loving Mississippi parents on the South Side of Chicago, Jones was inspired by his older brothers, Foree and Gregory, and that inspiration led him to teaching himself how to play guitar when he was four years old.

 

Jones is a highly sought-after lecturer focusing on music pedagogy and literacy improvement whose clientele includes the Smithsonian Institute and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

 

Buddy Guy said that Fernando Jones is “one in a million trying to get to the bottom of the barrel of the Blues.” The incomparable Fernando Jones is a 21st Century Renaissance man and the 2008 Keeping the Blues Alive Award recipient (education).
