Jonathan Ammons is a minimalist. And a gifted artist. That puts him in the category of Tim Gane, John Cale, John Cage… Steve Reich. And we get the pleasure of an in-depth conversation across multiple shows. Getting to know Asheville’s Jonathan Ammons this week on LTNF.

A contributor to Salon, 100 Days in Appalachia, Mountain XpressWNC MagazineAsheville-Citizen Times, and Paste Magazine, he also helped open Asheville’s MG Road cocktail lounge, and has worked and staged at Chicago’s Aviary by Grant Achatz, as well as the Bazaar by Jose Andres in Los Angeles.

A professional hedonist, eating, drinking, and stumbling his way through his beloved Southern culture.
