Hi Beau,

Hope all is well with you. We won't be running the Keith Summers Festival  this year  but perhaps you could help us publicise

Jeff Davis .


Many thanks,


Peta Webb & Ken Hall



Jeff Davis

at Musical Traditions Club   

Friday 24th February 2012

               Jeff Davis, superb old-time fiddle player, is a master of clawhammer banjo, guitar & mandolin without ever striving for showy licks or empty virtuosity. His singing, based on long immersion in the styles of the old singers is truly timeless, conjuring vividly the world of the cowboy or the Civil War soldier.   "When Jeff Davis sings the repertoire of the Appalachian Mountains, he cuts through decades and across borders, sitting us right down in the dirt in front of a weather-beaten shack, at the feet of a hillbilly singer - he combines authenticity and art in a rare way." Chronicle Herald of Nova Scotia
