Common Chords with Rev. Robert Jones and Matt Watroba
From the Plantations to Motown, to Modern Pop & Hip Hop, Robert Jones and Matt Watroba will cast a musical spell that takes us through time and the variety of music and harmonies that were seeded and simmered in the USofA - mainly through the use of only three major chords.

Reverend Robert Jones, Sr. is an inspirational singer, songwriter, storyteller and self-taught award-winning multi-instrumentalist. He plays guitar, harmonica, mandolin, banjo and fiddle using folk, blues, spirituals and other American Roots music to champion the history, beauty and power of our shared culture. His deep love for traditional African American and American music is shared in live performances that interweave timeless stories with original and traditional songs. At the heart of his message is the belief that our cultural diversity tells a story that should celebrate, not just tolerate.

Together with his best friend, Matt Watroba, a black man and a white man, obviously great friends, on stage together singing and talking about tolerance and respect...living diversity, not just preaching it, makes for a evening that is not just a powerhouse of entertainment, but a deeply impressive message that resonates to the soul.

For Matt and Robert, American Roots Music (Folk, Blues, Spirituals, Work Songs, Chants, etc.) is music that matters.  This is the music that America and the world have in common.  It is music that reflects history, social change, migration, hopes and dreams.  It is music that is rich and diverse, direct and powerful.
