Hughie Jones plays guitar, banjo, and ukulele and was taught harmonica by the legendary blues man Sonny Terry. A member of The Spinners Folkgroup until their disbandment at the end of 1988, Hughie and the band made over 30 LPs and dozens of compilations were produced on the Fontana, Phillips and EMI labels.

Hughie's work now centres particularly on sea song and this has given him a platform at home and aborad. His CD 'Liverpool Connexions' features mostly maritime works and a fair sprinkling of characters from his native Liverpool too. His latest CD 'Maritime Miscellany' contains songs from many aspects of seafaring and features friends from his long association with Fellside Recordings.
