Christopher Mark Jones just released Incantations, his fourth album of original Americana since 2010. His early musical itinerary included busking in Paris, the English folk club circuit, tours of Denmark and Holland, UK and European folk festivals, and radio appearances in London, followed by Boston-area clubs during an electric period. These days he enjoys playing festivals, clubs, small concert series and house concerts in formats ranging from solo to full band. At the Depot, he’ll be in an acoustic trio format with cousin Dave Gillespie on guitar and vocals and Greg Winters on fretless acoustic bass.
Hailed as “One of the most dynamic Americana groups out of Detroit, Michigan” Escaping Pavement masterfully blends and blurs the lines of Bluegrass, Folk, and Americana. Their unique joint frontperson arrangement, with Emily Burns and Aaron Markovitz sharing equally in singing, songwriting, and guitar playing allow for astounding, harmony-driven, musical interplay. With over 500 shows under their belt, a new EP comprised of music inspired by the National Parks, and a non-stop touring schedule, this Detroit-Music-Award-winning duo is ready to spread their roots-based message, far and wide.
