Jeff Little Trio

Jeff Little, pianist, is a remarkable musician, steeped in the tradition of his native Blue Ridge, yet also a virtuosic and eclectic innovator of old time country, bluegrass, rockabilly, and blues on the piano. With few exceptions, the piano does not play a prominent part in Appalachian or Americana music, and it is rarely the lead instrument. But Jeff Little is an exception – and a remarkable one. His distinctive two handed style, much influenced by the mountain flat picked guitar tradition, is breath-taking in its speed, precision, and clarity. The Jeff Little Trio includes Jeff Little on piano, harmonica, and vocals, Steve Lewis on acoustic guitar and five string banjo, and Luke Little on mandolin and acoustic guitar.
