Jeff Warner at Edinburgh Folk Club, Wednesday 30th SeptemberNone of you will believe this but next Wednesday's gig will be really special and, perhaps, the highlight of the year for many....
"With warmth, humor and understated scholarship, Jeff Warner connects 21st century audiences with the music and everyday lives of 19th century people.
He presents musical traditions from the Outer Banks fishing villages of North Carolina, to the lumber camps of the Adirondack Mountains and the whaling ports of New England.
His songs have “the stamp of authority and real experience” (Tykes News, Yorkshire, UK). He has honed his craft in front of audiences across the country at festivals, museums, clubs and schools. His songs, rich in local history and a sense of place, bring us the latest news from the distant past
“Firsthand experience, married to complete mastery of traditional [music], and allied to a natural voice and dry, understated humor in the American vein of Missourian Harry Truman and Mississippian Mark Twain.” The Chronicle-Herald, Halifax, Nova Scotia
“He is a talented musician on a variety of instruments, but that is completely overshone by his total love of, and involvement in, the songs he sings – he inhabits a song in a way which very few singers can do. One of the best evenings of the year.”
Molly Mockford of Folk at the Royal Oak, Lewes, UK
Venue: Pleasance Cabaret Bar - 8:00pm
Admission: £8.00 (£7.00 concession)
Jeff appeared at EFC last year for the first time and was absolutely outstanding. He is a very warm and friendly performer too, an extremely knowledgeable exponent of American folklore, talented multi instrumentalist, but....above all....very much the consummate entertainer.
If you have never seen seen Jeff before, then you should make up your mind to do so... and soon!
