Kennedy Jones (musician)
Kennedy Jones or Jonesey (1 August 1900 – 6 September 1990) was an American guitarist and music writer.[1] He was a pioneer of the "thumb picking" style often associated with Merle Travis... He was born on a farm in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. He received his inspiration from his mother Alice who played several instruments. He married Irene Hicks, a pianist, and they performed together early in his career. He claimed to be the first guitarist to play using a thumbpick - at a square dance in 1918. Previously thumbpicks had been used only for the banjo or hawaiian guitar. He also played the fiddle and declined to join Merle Travis's band The Drifting Pioneers.[1] Jones composed the thumbpickers anthem "Cannonball Rag," but when Travis recorded the tune in the 1940s, the latter received the credit.[1] In 1939 Jones moved to Chicago. He played in several bands, one which included his sons, Donald and Kennedy Jr
