Calvin Jones returns to Pierre, piano in hand

Calvin Jones performing “October” sample – solo piano.

This interview is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.

Calvin Jones became an artist on a piano bench in his local church in Pierre. In this interview, he talks about learning to speak his own language and share his voice through music.

Today Jones travels the world and performs with both community and world-class orchestras. But he still remembers his childhood on the Missouri River and the power of a South Dakota Sunset.
