Album Notes
About Jolly Tinker:

“A stunning record. Not to be missed by anyone who loves American traditional folk songs and singing.”
Dirty Linen Magazine.

“Jeff’s album is a succession of delights. He has been surrounded by traditional song throughout his life and he uses this deep knowledge and broad access to repertoire to great advantage…a satisfying album to be listened to for years to come.”
Folk Roots Magazine (UK).

“As the son of perhaps our most notable song finding couple…he grew up with, not just the songs, but the stories and the spirit of the actual people who preserved them. The result of this extraordinary upbringing can be heard in every note and word of his latest release, Jolly Tinker.”
Sing Out! Magazine.

“[It is] really good - I mean, enough to make you sit up and take a closer listen. Jolly Tinker is such a confident and accomplished work. It’s roaring good!”
WUNH Radio, Durham, NH.

“Great stuff! A wonderful selection of songs, and your usual impeccable way of singing them. I'm delighted, and eager to start using it on my show.”
WKAR Radio, East Lansing, MI.

“What a great CD with so much traditional music. Keep 'em coming!”
KROS Radio, Clinton, IA.

“I think it is his finest work!”
WFDU Radio, Teaneck, NJ.

About Jeff Warner:

With warmth, humor and understated scholarship, Jeff Warner connects 21st century audiences with the music and everyday lives of 19th century people. He presents musical traditions from the Outer Banks fishing villages of North Carolina, to the lumber camps of the Adirondack Mountains. His songs have “the stamp of authority and real experience” (Tykes News, Yorkshire, UK). His songs, rich in local history and a sense of place, bring us the latest news from the distant past.

Warner is a Folklorist and Community Scholar for the New Hampshire Council on the Arts,and has been named a 2007 State Arts Council Fellow. He has toured nationally for the Smithsonian Institution and has recorded for Flying Fish/Rounder and other labels. His 1995 recording, Two Little Boys, received a Parents’ Choice Award.

He is the editor of Traditional American Folksongs from the Frank and Anne Warner Collection (Syracuse University Press, 1984), and producer of the CD set Her Bright Smile Haunts Me Still: The Warner Collection (Appleseed Recordings, 2000). Both publications make available the work of his parents, who were pioneer collectors of songs from rural America. Her Bright Smile is the actual voices of singers who were born from 1860 to 1900, recorded by the Warners on early disk recorders.

Jeff Warner is past president of the Country Dance and Song Society, a past officer of the North American Folk Music and Dance Alliance, has been an artist for Virginia, Ohio and Utah Arts Councils and is past producer of the Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival.
