To mark the release of his new album, Fleeting, Glenn Jones, the master American Primitivism guitarist, heads out on a 12-date tour across the UK and Europe. It kicks off this Saturday 23rd April in Dublin, Ireland. The dates will include a show at Cafe OTO in London (25th April) with folk singer-songwriter Kath Bloom.
Released last month, Glenn Jones weaves masterful stories with the guitar and banjo on Fleeting, from the delicate and intricate “Flower Turned Inside-Out” which we’ve chosen as our Tune of the Day.
The album was recorded in a house on the banks of the Rancocas Creek in Mount Holly, New Jersey, where Glenn Jones and his recording engineer Laura Baird (The Baird Sisters) made no attempts to soundproof their environment, instead incorporating the sounds of crickets and birds into the recordings. It’s all the richer for it.
