Jeff Warner

The Inheritor of one of the USA's Finest song Legacies. Warner was brought up on the road with his song collecting parents  (Anne and Frank Warner) witnessing some of the old time greats and experiencing first hand a now vanished culture. And not a little of it has rubbed off. A welcome return! 

Jeff  is among the foremost performer/interpreters of traditional music. His songs from the lumber camps, fishing villages and mountaintops of America 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, NY). 

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).

“I’ve just received a copy of your magnificent Jolly Tinker – what a joy! It is without doubt one of the finest traditional American recordings I’ve ever heard.”
Frank Hennessy, “Celtic Heartbeat” BBC Radio Wales (UK)

“Your material and musical skill have captivated both knowledgeable folk music devotees and the uninitiated. 
Smithsonian Institution Regional Events Program
Mosi Conde

Mosi Conde’s music is steeped in tradition with a global sonic awareness. Solo or with his band Mosi creates music that excites and delights, his virtuoso skill evident throughout. â€œWe griots are born in music, every family plays together. Music is our life”.

Mosi Conde’s celebration of his griot heritage shines through. His debut album ‘Kaira Kora Afrika’ secured glowing reviews and Radio 3 and BBC World Service airplay as well as Colourful, Resonance Fm,  Regional BBC and others globally.

Mosi Conde is a great communicator sharing deep awareness of his beloved Guinea and a strong affinity for London through his fabulous compositions and performances. He has played solo at WOMAD and for Nelson Mandela and Bill Clinton, at the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, and at many major festivals.
