One of the foremost performers and interpreters of traditional music from the USA is next week’s headliner at the Baldock and Letchworth Blues, Folk and Roots Club.

Jeff Warner performs songs from the lumber camps, fishing villages and mountain tops of America to connect 21st century audiences with the everyday lives of 19th century Americans.

His songs, rich in history and a sense of place, have won him a loyal following during his frequent visits to the UK and he’s been hailed by those in the know as one of the most charismatic, enthusiastic and genuinely versatile performers on the scene, with a warm and approachable personality to match his encyclopaedic knowledge of traditional song.
