Glenn Jones is one of the leading proponents of American Primitive Guitar, a fingerstyle acoustic genre pioneered in the late 1950s by his friend and mentor John Fahey. Following his departure from leading the rock band Cul de Sac, Jones has released seven full-length solo albums. His latest release, Vade Mecum, delves into personal experiences and shared histories by blending elements of rock and experimental music with the guitar and banjo.

Emily Robb, a prominent player in the rock and experimental music scenes, opens. Her latest album, If I Am Misery Then Give Me Affection, showcases economically crafted tunes marked by utter trance and tightrope pulsations and highlights her virtuosic electric guitar skills. Robb oversees the recording and mixing of her albums at her Philadelphia-based studio, Suddenly Studio.
