Bruce Jones, 1930-2012

Bluegrass musician Bruce Jones has died.

Bruce Jones and his brother, Lee, formed The Jones Brothers Bluegrass Band in Stanly County in the early 1960s, adding the Log Cabin Boys in 1969.

They had a successful recording and touring career and a loyal following of fans, and they recorded 15 albums and for 10 years had a show called “Movin’ with Bluegrass” on a Charlotte television station. Bruce Jones also hosted a popular morning radio program in Albemarle for more than 20 years.

The Jones Brothers played together for more than 50 years, before a stroke forced Bruce Jones to retire earlier this year.

Jones died Nov. 28, 2012, in Carolinas Medical Center Northeast in Concord, and his funeral will be held Sat., Dec. 1, in Midland.
