The piece also features stories about Joni Mitchell.
In Three Chords, Five Notes the Reverend Robert B. Jones takes the audience on a musical journey that explores the roots of spirituals, worksongs, blues, country bluegrass, rock and roll, Motown sound and even rap music. The Reverend Robert Jones, Sr. is an inspirational storyteller and musician who celebrates the history, humor, and power of American Roots music. At the heart of his message is the belief that our cultural diversity tells a story that should celebrate, not just tolerate.
