You can now find ALL of Alan Lomax's recordings online for FREE. I hope all of you are as excited about this as I am. This guy pretty much single-handedly changed my life.
I've pretty much accepted that my day is shot now... I am off to listen to some Mississippi Prison Songs from 1947.

I am very happy and excited to announce my upcoming tour this April. It's been something I've been working on for months now….countless hours and cups of coffee went into this thing.
The plan is to start on April 8th hitting up Philly first and head south from there. Eventually I will turn west and get as far as Tupelo, MS before I head north, making the obligatory stop in Nashville till I hit Annandale, MN. From there, I'll be homeward bound and heading back east. I am still piecing together some shows over the last leg of this thing… so please check back often for updates as I don't want to bombard you with emails concerning my whereabouts.
This will be my first run solo in a long time, which is a scary thing. I will also be playing in many towns and areas I've never been to. All of these factors add up to what can feel like a daunting combination, so please come out and support if you can. It would be great to meet you all and share a beer and a song or two.
You can also follow me on Instagram @thebonesofjrjones. I will be posting pics and stories of the road #thetroubletour.
Also.. if you happened to miss it. I had a little video release for, "ticket home" on VICE. I hope you like it.
All dates are listed below on my SHOWS page.
See you out there, in the thick of it.

Here in NYC we just had one of the sorriest "blizzards" I have ever experienced. It was a major let down for me on a personal level, as I grew up in an area where we hold the snow fall record in the lower 48, depending on the year. I was looking forward to that taste of home... but so it goes.
I am writing to you because there are some good things cookin on the stove and wanted to share them with you. First and Foremost, my video for "Ticket Home" premiered on Noisey yesterday. I am super excited about this and could not have happened with out many your generous donations to my kickstarter last year. Thank you for being a part of the making of the video.
I am also planning a little tour through April. I hope to make it through a good portion of the South and Midwest. If you want me to play your town or living room...please reach out and will do my damnedest to try make it work. I will be updating my concert schedule periodically so please be sure to check back and see where I am going to be.
Annnnddd.. over the weekend of February 8th I will be out in LA. You can find me at the Silverlake Lounge on Sunday the 8th at around 8:30. I will be doing a free show. If you are in the area, it would make me happy to see you, for what it's worth.
I hope you all are doing well.
