The Movement That Sang
Robert Jones and Matt Watroba

Please review The Ark’s current COVID-related information before attending a show.

Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Ever since their first meeting, over 20 years ago, Robert Jones and Matt Watroba have been musical partners. Their relationship started when they hosted back-to-back radio shows on WDET-FM, Detroit. Later on they started performing together and in doing so discovered a friendship based on mutual respect and a love for traditional American music. For Matt and Robert, American roots music (folk, blues, spirituals, work songs, chants, etc.) is music that matters. This is the music that America and the world have in common.  It is music that reflects history, social change, migration, hopes and dreams. It is music that is rich and diverse, direct and powerful. This year’s program is a celebration of the life and musical legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
