Jon Langford

Jon Langford Jon Langford at Garde Rail Gallery. "...Welsh singer/songwriter Jon Langford is known for his paintings, 'worn in' like a pair of old Levi's, that pay tribute to American music legends such as Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash as well as dusty Western depictions of gun slinging skeletons and dueling cowboys. These beautifully layered paintings suggest the mileage that only a tour bus can rack up!
Jon Langford has been well known since the 1970's as founding member of the British rock band The Mekons. Hailing from Wales, Jon moved stateside in the 1990's, landing in Chicago, and started other projects such as The Waco Brothers and Pine Valley Cosmonauts."
