Robert Jones & Matt Watroba — Sunday, November 12, 2023 —

A hardy welcome to two impressive veteran performers, ROBERT JONES AND MATT WATROBA, making their debut performance at Maple Street Concerts. Robert and Matt met over thirty-five years ago when they hosted back-to-back radio shows on WDET-FM (Detroit). In forging their musical partnership, they discovered a friendship based in mutual respect and a love for traditional American music: Folk, Blues, Spirituals, Work Songs, Chants, etc. This American Roots Music is the common music across America and the world, and it is music that matters. It reflects history, social change, migration, hopes and dreams, and it is rich and diverse, direct and powerful.

As talented as they are individually, together they form a synergy that is engaging, inspirational, and soul-nurturing. They formed a non-profit company called “Common Chords” to connect communities through music and the arts. Jones and Watroba utilize the folk process to bring people together through music and showcase what we all have in common. Music and stories bypass the brain and go straight to the heart.
