Laney Jones’s songwriting is as quirky and charming as her upbringing in rural Mount Dora, Florida. Raised on an exotic animal farm surrounded by an alligator-infested lake, she artfully spins tall tales of love and adventure in the swamplands. Laney’s voice has been described as a mix of lemon, molasses, gin and gunpowder. Her talents on the banjo have been augmented by studying with prominent clawhammer and old-time technicians such as Mark Johnson and Bruce Molsky. Laney also incorporates multi-instrumental prowess on ukulele and harmonica in her live shows and recordings.

Laney is opening for Dom Flemons:
