Fernando Jones & Friends

American Bluesman, educator, songwriter and scholar Fernando Jones was born to loving Mississippi parents on the South Side of Chicago. Inspired by his older brothers, Foree and Gregory, Jones taught himself how to play guitar when he was four years old. Currently, he’s a bandleader with a power trio second to none; Blues Ensemble director at Columbia College Chicago (the nation’s premier performing arts and media school); and a highly sought after lecturer focusing on music pedagogy and literacy improvement whose clientele includes the Smithsonian Institute and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. On July 9, 2010 Jones received a Proclamation from Pat Quinn, Governor of the State of Illinois, for founding Blues Camp.
