One of the major reasons I make instruments is the joy that comes from seeing and hearing good music flow from those collections of wood and strings. This section features some of the artists who are currently playing my instruments and making this wonderful music. I hope you will support these artists with your purchases of their recordings or by hiring them for performances, festivals or whatever. Click on their names and you'll be whisked away to their web sites. If you are a player of a James Jones Instrument and have a web page and would like to be listed on this page, please contact me.
