Professor Emeritus, Modern Languages
Christopher Mark Jones speaks five languages and has been a professional basketball player and French teacher as well as a singer/songwriter. Since 2010 he has released four albums of new songs—Heartland Variations (2010), Suburban 2-Step (2012), Atlantica (2014), Incantations (2017) and a re-mastered version of No More Range to Roam (1978). His early musical itinerary included busking in Paris, the English folk club circuit, tours of Denmark and Holland, UK and European folk festivals, and radio appearances in London, followed by Boston-area clubs during an electric period. These days he enjoys playing festivals, clubs, small concert series, and house concerts in formats varying from solo to full band, but always with an emphasis on story-driven lyrics and varied textures and rhythms.
