Arts & Artists

New Hampshire Artist Roster

Jeff Warner
American Folk Music


Jeff Warner performs the music of America's rural past: songs of Revolutionary War heroes and life and work aboard wooden ships, African-American banjo tunes, songs from 19th century lumber camps and ballads of old New Hampshire. His songs and stories bring us the latest news from the distant past. Programs for young people include hands-on fun with accessible rhythm instruments like bones and spoons. Jeff has toured in thirty-six states for the Smithsonian Institution and has been an artist for the Ohio Arts Council's Arts-in-Education Program and Young Audiences, Inc. of Massachusetts. Jeff’s parents, Anne and Frank Warner, were early collectors of American folk songs. An avid music scholar himself, Jeff has released recordings of the music collected by his parents, as well as CDs of his own work. In 2007, Jeff received a prestigious Artist Fellowship award from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts. Jeff is the 2016 recipient of the Country Song and Dance Society Lifetime Achievement Award.
