Ieuan Jones ' mission has taken him around the world, transfixing audiences with his richly characterful playing; in Spain they dubbed him "Esplendoroso Jones." His flair is founded upon a solid basis of technique, acquired over years of study from the age of six to his studies at the Royal College of Music where he is now professor. Ieuan has performed in more than twenty-five countries, given concerto appearance with some of the world's leading orchestras and has many recordings to his credit. He has received standing ovations from the Concertgebouw to the Teatro Colon in Argentina, the Port Fairy, Barossa and Melbourne festivals in Australia to the Cultural Centre in Manila, City Hall in Hong Kong and many more. In the UK, Ieuan appears at all of the major concert hall venues with varied programmes that include works rarely played on the harp and often with ensembles involving flute and strings. He is a member of the Debussy Ensemble and the Instrumental Quintet of London.
