You never know what kind of rollicking ruckus the Bros will dredge up! And they will surely crank up the fun level to “high” at the June Chantey Sing.

Jeff Warner in Concert Oct. 8

Jeff Warnerat Center for Wooden Boats

Jeff Warner returns to Seattle in maritime-focused concert on Saturday, October 8th at 8:00 p.m. at the Center for Wooden Boats.

Jeff is among the nation’s foremost performer and interpreters of traditional music. His songs from the lumber camps, fishing villages, and mountain tops, 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 singers that his parents Frank and Anne Warner recorded in folksong collecting trips through rural America. He accompanied his parents on their later field trips, and through these songs, connects us today with the everyday lives and artistry of 18th and 19th century folks.

Sailor songs, banjo tunes, and mountain songs make for a diverse concert for all-ages. “Jeff will leave you with a deeper appreciation of the land you live in” (Caffé Lena, Saratoga, NY).
