10th May Jeff Warner
Jeff Warner is among the USA’s foremost performer/interpreters of traditional music. His songs from the lumber camps, fishing villages and mountaintops of America connect 21st century audiences with the everyday lives–and artistry–of 19th century Americans. “Providing more than just rich entertainment, Jeff will leave you with a deeper appreciation of the land you live in” (Caffé Lena, Saratoga, NY). His songs, rich in local history and a sense of place, bring us the latest news from the distant past.
Jeff has performed widely, from large festivals in the UK, to clubs, festivals and schools across America. He plays Concertina, Banjo, Guitar and several “pocket” instruments, including bones and spoons. His dancing doll is amazing.
“He inhabits a song in a way which few singers can do”
(Royal Oak Folk Club, Lewes, UK)
