Glenn Jones, Ezekiel Graves 

When: Sun., July 7, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $7

Studying a master can be a task fraught with both peril and reward. Massachusetts guitarist Glenn Jones, for instance, has spent a large portion of his life exploring and analyzing the work of John Fahey, the go-to reference for finger-style guitarists and an important source of musical hybridization. He was a key driving force, for instance, behind Your Past Comes Back to Haunt You, a masterful 2011 box set documenting Fahey's early work. Jones' work, though, embraces all the loaded emotionality and personal vulnerability as Fahey's without at all aping him. Sure, Jones is a solo guitar (and banjo) picker, but his work is traced by an approachable affability that was often unfamiliar to Fahey. For instance, Jones' wonderful new LP, My Garden State, stems from time he spent caring for his mother in his New Jersey childhood home. It's sweet, sad and ultimately expressive, the sound of an instrumentalist liming a clear emotional center with every note. With Ezekiel Graves. —Grayson Currin
