Join us for a virtual 21st century musical evening devoted to tunes and tales from the19th and 18th century. One-man band and multi-instrumentalist marvel Jeff Warner will regale us with tales and sing songs from New Hampshire’s lumber camps, whaling ships and textile mills, all the while accompanying himself on concertina, banjo, guitar, bones and spoons. Born into a family of folksong collectors, Jeff has toured nationally for the Smithsonian Institute and is among the nation’s foremost performer/interpreters of traditional music. Historians and musicians alike will be astounded by this chance to hear living artifacts from times gone by, testament to –as Carl Sandburg put it—“where we came from and what brought us along.”
Jeff Warner’s performance was made possible by New Hampshire Humanities, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities. Learn more at www.nhhumanities.org.
