Mel Jones and His Bag o' Bones 

When: Sun., July 17, 5 p.m. 2016
Mel Jones bills himself as “Dr. John meets Sonny Terry,” but it’s more like Ry Cooder meets Phil Wiggins. Jones and his Bag o’ Bones do thirties-era hokum, blues, bluegrass, swing, and New Orleans jazz, often in the same tune. Mel’s originals sound like unearthed treasures from bygone eras with guitarist Don Story, bassist Calvin Johnson, Kip Snow on mandolin, and fiddler John Hofmann helping to spread Mel’s harmonica prowess over a large canvas. —Grant Britt
