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.
