jeff Warner : The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, London SE15 3BE. 7pm, Floorpspots very welcome. £8 on the door.
Jeff Warner is among America’s foremost performer/interpreters of traditional music. His songs from the lumber camps, fishing villages and mountain tops 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. And “he inhabits a song in a way which few singers can do” (Royal Oak Folk Club, Lewes, UK).
