Glenn Jones, Nathan Bowles 

When: Thu., April 14, 8:30 p.m. 2016
Price: $10



For the last decade, the New England guitarist Glenn Jones has used a series of quiet, fetching records to share the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of his life without so much as a word. Jones is a brilliant and innovative instrumentalist, having taken the lessons of John Fahey, on whom he is a leading authority, and updated them through novel approaches. Much more than a mere technician, though, Jones makes poignant albums that gather intricate, intimate portrayals of moments sad or sweet, hopeful or harangued—and so offers a very human connection for a sometimes obtuse subgenre. Jones's music makes you feel like his confidant and friend and, the longer you listen, vice versa, as if these rippling songs for six or five strings come to reflect your own tales. With banjo in hand, Nathan Bowles, a longtime favorite but a recent arrival to Durham, does something similar with lyric-less songs that share sentiments behind the scenes. —Grayson Haver Currin
