A fine singer of American traditional songs, Jeff accompanies himself on guitar, 5-string banjo & English concertina. 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.

Jeff is great, and is as nice to the beginner as the experienced - do check it out if you can!

Jeff is great!  An old friend, though I haven't seen him since I moved to Denmark.  A quarter-century later, he can only be better than ever.  And the material from the Warner collection is wonderful stuff.

 

And this is sufficient advance notice that I might even be able to plan ahead and be there in Lewes.  I sure hope so!
