Jeff Little Trio to Perform at the Davis Theatre March 20

National Public Radio called Jeff Little “a remarkable musician, steeped in the tradition of his native Blue Ridge, yet also a virtuosic and eclectic innovator.” Little makes piano his lead instrument, rare in Appalachian or Americana music. His distinctive two-handed style, much influenced by the mountain flat-picked guitar tradition, is breathtaking in its speed, precision and clarity. He will be joined by Steve Lewis, who has won guitar and banjo competitions at Merlefest and the Galax Old Time Fiddlers Convention, and Josh Scott, a highly sought after upright bass master.
