Glenn Jones

"The best guitarist you never heard of." –The Boston Globe

A 30+-year devotee of the so-called American Primitive school of acoustic steel string
guitarists, Glenn Jones has been playing guitar since theage of 14. He formed Boston psych-rock band, Cul de Sac, in 1989 and led it on its 20 year journey to nowhere, leaving nine albums in its wake, including collaborations with guitarist John Fahey and Can's Damo Suzuki.

In 2011, Jones signed to Chicago's Thrill Jockey Records. He issued a split album (with Virginia's Back Twig Pickers) in March, and has a full-length double LP (The Wanting) slated for release in Septmeber.

Jones has performed with and written extensively about the leading lights of the American Primitive guitar style, John Fahey and Robbie Basho. Longstanding friendship with both artists and first-hand knowledge of their work inform his writing, which includes incisive liner notes for five Fahey albums.
