Next Main Stage Concert:

Diana Jones

Diana Jones
Friday, April 12, 7:30 p.m.
Diana Jones has reclaimed her Appalachian mountain heritage and emerged as an outstanding songwriter and musician who delivers enduring songs with a classic ruby-rich voice. Her songs have themes of love, loss, and redemption, exploring themes that are as ancient as the hills yet as young as yesterday, both with the freshness of tomorrow. While seemingly simple and plainspoken, they are in fact skillfully drawn pieces that weave together timeless melodies and deeply stirring lyrics. From the mournful lament of a dance hall girl to the stomping melodic rant of a young woman’s burial instructions, each of her songs draws life from old-time country blues and mountain music.
