He is always intelligent and richly melodic."-The Boston Globe
Jeff Little is an award-winning musician from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North
Carolina. With few exceptions the piano does not play a prominent part in
Americana or Appalachian music and is rarely the lead instrument. But Jeff Little is
an exception and a remarkable one. Jeff has not only been recognized as a critically
acclaimed musician but also a true music innovator.
Jeff as well as his trio stay busy traveling the country performing concerts with an
energy and dedication to their music that is evident at every show. Performances
include The Smithsonian Institution, The National Folk Festival, American Piano
Masters, The Barns of Wolf Trap and many theatres, performing arts centers, and
festivals. Jeff has been featured on National Public Radio and PBS many times and
has also taken his music around the world for the US Bureau of Educational and
Cultural Affairs performing in Sri Lanka, Bahrain, Pakistan, Oman, France and
Tanzania. In 2014 Jeff was inducted into the Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame. In
