Aaron Jones

Originally from Poole in England, Aaron Jones has lived and worked in Scotland for over twenty years. Although he currently resides near Moffat in the Scottish Borders, Aaron spends much of his year touring in the USA and throughout the UK and Europe. He has recorded on countless traditional albums and has made numerous TV and Radio appearances Worldwide. He continues to work regularly with some of the biggest names in 'folk' music both as a performer and as a producer.

Their latest release, on Nashville's Compass Records label and titled 'Wherever Yet May Be' was shortlisted for the same award. Litha is a fantastic collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Claire Mann and award winning German duo Deitsch. 2012 will see them launch the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut 'Until The Cows Come Home'.
