Madison County Arts Council presents Jeff Little Trio in concert

Press release from Madison County Arts Council: 

When you think of traditional Southern Appalachian music, the piano is not an instrument that immediately comes to mind. Jeff Little is a remarkable exception to that notion. Jeff grew up in Boone hanging around his father’s music shop. The shop was a regular gathering place for musicians who would just stop by to pick a few tunes. At an early age, Jeff would regularly sit in with many of the musicians from the region, including one of America’s most influential musicians, Doc Watson. Doc’s clean flatpicking guitar style influenced Jeff’s piano style.  And soon, Jeff’s two-handed piano style was emulating Doc’s guitar style.

“Jeff is a terrific musician, and entertainer,” claims Laura Boosinger, Executive Director of the Madison County Arts Council. “I have been wanting to present him for some time to our audience in Madison County. We often run into each other at festivals, and I just know his down-home approach and stellar musicianship will thrill our folks.” His band is pretty fabulous too!  Steve Lewis is a national guitar and banjo player. And, Jeff’s son, Luke, often steps up on mandolin.

The show will be held at the Ebbs Chapel School on Sunday, June 25th at 4:00 PM. Tickets are $20.  More information and tickets at or call (828) 649-1301.
