For over 40 years Skip has been sharing songs and stories with audiences of all types and sizes.
Some songs come from the giants of Americana music – giants such as Woody Guthrie. Others are from some of the great folk singers Skip has had the privilege of working with over the years, including old friend and mentor U. Utah Phillips, Guy Carawan, Bill Staines and Larry Long. On occasion, he may also sneak in a few songs he has written himself.
The stories come from travels around the world as a navy veteran and performer, and from his own back yard surrounded by members of the Mohican Nation in Northeast Wisconsin. Skip Jones is a musical activist for many issues from clean water to respecting each other, and his convictions work their way into his music and stories.
Beyond his own performances he has organized and directed festivals and concert series, introduced House Concerts to the Midwest and beyond, provided high-quality sound engineering for folk festivals and cultural events, and has produced and recorded albums for local, regional and national artists.
