Jones Family Singers bring gospel to brewery
By: Ariana Kramer

When Bishop Fred A. Jones Sr. was a young man he decided if he ever married, and if he ever had children, he would train them to be gospel singers. When he married Sarah M. Jones, she had four children already, and together they had three more. The Jones Family Singers were born. For over two decades, the gospel group has been sharing their music and faith with audiences in churches, nightclubs, festivals, prisons, interfaith events and community celebrations around the country and world.

Now, the family will be performing in Taos. Roots & Wires presents The Jones Family Singers on Friday (Nov. 6), at Taos Mesa Brewing, 20 ABC Mesa Road, off U.S. 64 west.

For 30 years, the Jones Family Singers performed on the Southern Gospel circuit. They were discovered by the wider music world with the help of music critic Michael Corcoran and Austin’s SXSW Music Festival and they have since toured in Europe, Canada and Russia. Their rise in the public light was made into the documentary film, “The Jones Family Will Make A Way.”
