Glenn Jones – “The Sunken Amusement Park”

American primitive guitar virtuoso Glenn Jones is returning this summer with The Giant Who Ate Himself And Other New Works For 6 And 12 String Guitar, another collection of warm, intuitive acoustic fingerpicked beauty. Named in tribute to Jones’ longtime mentor and friend John Fahey, the album will be out in August, and today he’s shared its first single. According to Jones, “The Sunken Amusement Park” is “an evocation of images of the amusement parks and boardwalks of the New Jersey Coast submerged by Hurricane Sandy in 2012,” and you can listen to it below.
