Northwest Seaport & Seattle Folklore Society present
Jeff Warner in Concert
October 25, 2014
Phinney Neighborhood Center (lower brick building)
Jeff Warner’s traditional songs, rich in local history and a sense of place, present the latest news from the distant past. Community songs, banjo tunes, 18th-century New England hymns, and sailor songs highlight his amusing and informative all-ages programs.
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 produced a two-CD set of the Warners’ recordings of rural singers, many of them born in Victorian times.
