Music That Matters w/Robert Jones

"This show delivers a wonderful and powerful message of love, friendship, tolerance: where we have been, where we are, and hopefully where we can go. It is a walk through the roots and history of American music that not only educates, but entertains. Robert and Matt are consummate professionals, and always a joy to work with. Children and teachers love this interactive show, and the evaluations I get are enthusiastic endorsements and requests to present it again.”
- Jennifer Tobin, Arts Coord, Village Theater of Canton

Ever since their first meeting, over twenty years ago, Robert Jones and Matt Watroba have been musical partners.  Their relationship started when they hosted back to back, radio shows on WDET-FM, Detroit.  Later on they started performing together and, in doing so, they discovered a friendship based in mutual respect and a love for traditional American music.  Now, Matt and Robert literally travel the nation extolling the virtues of “Music That Matters”.

For Matt and Robert, American Roots Music (Folk, Blues, Spirituals, Work Songs, Chants, etc.) is music that matters.  This is the music that America and the world have in common.  It is music that reflects history, social change, migration, hopes and dreams.  It is music that is rich and diverse, direct and powerful.  As talented as they are individually, Matt and Robert together form a synergy that hard to describe.  Whether for a performance, a workshop or a school presentation any organization would be well served by bringing in this duo.
