Experience the driving rhythms of chanteys and the beauty of seafaring ballads from the deck of the historic sailing ship Balclutha. Jeff Warner is among the nation’s foremost performers and interpreters of traditional music. His performances link 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.” –Caffe Lena, Saratoga, NY.
Jeff Warner has performed widely, from large festivals in the U.S. and UK, to clubs and schools across America. Accompanying himself on concertina, banjo and guitar, “He inhabits a song in a way which few singers can do.” –Royal Oak Folk Club, Lewes, UK.
