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 â€“ and artistry â€“ of 19th-century Americans. â€œProviding more than just rich entertainment, Jeff will leave you with a deeper appreciation of the land you live inâ€ (CaffÃ© 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 â€œpocketâ€ instruments, including bones and spoons. And â€œhe inhabits a song in a way which few singers can doâ€ (Royal Oak Folk Club, Lewes, UK).
â€œIâ€™ve just received a copy of your magnificent Jolly Tinker â€“ what a joy! It is without doubt one of the finest traditional American recordings Iâ€™ve ever heard.â€
Frank Hennessy, â€œCeltic Heartbeatâ€ BBC Radio Wales (UK)
