Jeff Warner

Jeff Warner is among the USA’s foremost performers and interpreters of traditional music.

His songs from the lumber camps, fishing villages and mountain tops of America connect 21st century audiences with the everyday lives–and artistry–of 19th century Americans.

His songs, rich in local history and a sense of place, bring us the latest news from the distant past.

Jeff grew up listening to the songs and stories of his father Frank Warner, and the traditional singers his parents met during their folksong collecting trips through rural America.

He accompanied his parents on their later field trips and is the editor of his mother’s book, Traditional American Folk Songs: From the Anne and Frank Warner Collection.

He is producer of the two-CD set, Her Bright Smile Haunts Me Still, the Warners’ recordings of rural singers.

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.

A native of New York City, Jeff has lived in Portsmouth, New Hampshire since the late 1990s.

He is a speaker for New Hampshire Humanities and an artist for the New Hampshire Council on the Arts, a former Arts Council Fellow, and a 2013 Performing Arts Honorable Mention.

Jeff is a founding officer of Folk Alliance International, a producer of the Portsmouth (NH) Maritime Folk Festival and past president of the
Country Dance and Song Society.

In 2016, CDSS honoured Jeff’s dedication to the world of traditional folk music with their annual Lifetime Contribution Award.
