In the last decade, singer-songwriter Diana Jones has brought her unique and original style of Appalachian singing and songwriting to devoted audiences on concert stages from Nashville to Amsterdam.
 
Jones’ story, well known to her fans, is as full of intricate connections as her narratives: the almost mystical connection she felt to rural Southern music while growing up in suburban New York, which led to the reunion at twenty-three with her birth family in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Her grandfather, Robert Lee Maranvville, a singer in the old time tradition, helped Jones make sense of her own distinctive voice and love of the storytelling genre. A lone pilgrim-age to a cabin after her grandfather’s death produced the songs that became her debut release, 'My Remembrance of You', which launched Jones’s career.
 
Following four critically acclaimed recordings, she is returning with a new live double record (released in February 2016) which includes old favourites and some new material which, as with her mesmerising live performance, should keep everyone happy. 
 
“..the one truly impressive American was Diana Jones, the only artist to play the main stage completely solo all weekend.” MOJO review of Cambridge Folk Festival.
 
An Evening with Diana Jones is hosted at The Continental on Sunday 17th April. Doors open at 7.30pm for an 8pm show start.
