2016 (Maryland) "This was Christopher Mark Jones' second appearance at my concert series. It was a delight to have him return and listen to some new material and "older" favorites. His rough edged, yet soft spoken vocals are captivating. His lyrics tell wonderful stories that keep the audience engaged. He is easy to communicate with and very easy going." Robin - House Concert host
2015 (North Carolina) "Wonderful show with Christopher. Great stories, solid songwriting and kept everyone interested throughout the show. He has people asking for his return to my series next year." Ken - House Concert host
2013 (NY) - "Christopher Mark Jones is a real pro
and quite an interesting down-to-earth guy. Our friends loved the
concert, and his way of opening up to the audience created an
intimate and meaningful atmosphere for a really great evening. It
was easy to arrange everything and he was also a fun and considerate
overnight guest. We had a really nice talk and connection, and the
music can't be beat!"
2013 (Maryland) - "Christopher Mark Jones has an incredible talent for telling stories through his lyrics. He brings out familiar sensitivities we can relate to. His voice catches your attention and has quite a convincing warm quality. He is very flexible and easy to work out arrangements with. He's personable to the guests as well."
2012 (Pennsylvania) - "Christopher Jones: Original songs, impeccable guitar styles, great vocals, moving lyrics" - Musican and house concert host Annie Trimble
