LLoyd Jones
Saturday, May 28, 7:30 pm

Portland, Oregon roots artist Lloyd Jones has recorded six critically acclaimed albums, toured internationally, and racked up dozens of major awards and accolades. He’s a relentless road dog, hitting festival stages, Delbert’s annual Sandy Beaches Cruises (he’s been a regular on six winter cruises), and clubs all across the land to enthusiastic crowds who can’t get enough of his swampy blues, his backporch picking, his serious-as-anthrax funk, soul, roadhouse two-beats, and old-school rhythm and blues.
 
Jones is a master of the soulful understatement, the raw growl, and the groove. From his roots in muddy Oregon soil, he’s forged a 30-plus-year career as an impassioned singer and fierce guitar slinger, a clever and soulful songwriter, a bandleader, record producer, and an almost strident torchbearer for all that’s true and good about America’s music. Jones is his own true artist who works diligently at pushing American roots music forward.

In the Art Bar - Bill Ball

Bill Ball, Artist Resume
 

It all started in 2013. With no formal training in art, I only discovered that I was an artist when I found myself at Burning Man, a week long art and music event in the Nevada desert. Artists were constructing and painting walls and sharing spaces. I was given a wall. I was tentative at first but threw myself into painting. "Psychedelic Cross" was the result, a large, vibrant, multicolored work... but a temporary one. I slept for a few hours and awoke to find it had been painted over.
