He presents music from North Carolina to New England with warmth, humour & understated scholarship. He's also a great teacher with a deep understanding of the origins on the music & how to perform it for today's listeners. His parents, Anne & Frank Warner, collected & published a huge number of traditional songs from the Eastern USA, with respect, empathy & affection for the singers. Their enormously important work is housed in the Library of Congress. The early part of the workshop will be an overview of the Warner collection (1938-1966) including voices & photos of the traditional singers. In the late afternoon Jeff presents & teaches songs from the collection. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Warner_(folklorist) IN THE EVENING JEFF WARNER PERFORMS AT LEWES SATURDAY FOLK CLUB (£8; tickets from club & website) Provisional Timetable 10.45 Registration & coffee; order lunch (refreshments not included) 11.00 Stories from the Warner collection with recorded sound & photos taken by the Warners. 12.30 Lunch 13.30 Continuing the story of the Warner collection. 14:45 An offering of songs from the collection performed by Jeff with the participation of the class. 15.00 Tea/coffee break 16.45 Finish N.B.
