Jonas is a singer/songwriter, percussionist, and multi-instrumentalist, known for recycling “found objects” into instruments and encouraging his audiences of all ages to discover their inherent musical abilities.

A resident of Asheville, N.C., Billy has developed a national following through his seven albums, a PBS special, and two decades of touring as a solo performer and as leader of the Billy Jonas Band.

Jonas’ recordings have brought him Gold awards from the American Federation of Independent Musicians as well as Parents’ Choice Awards and a New York Times “Best for Kids” listing.

In 2010 Billy Jonas and the Billy Jonas Band were invited to perform at the White House.

“The whole family will have a great time at Billy’s show,”  said TFAC Education Director Marianne Carruth “It’s perfect for Mother’s Day.”

Aoki Landscaping is the sponsor for this presentation in the Tryon Fine Arts Center Family Series.
