Jeff Davis 

Biography

The roots of Folk Harbour are planted in the shared musical traditions of Lunenburg and Gloucester, Massachusetts. Even as musical styles evolve and change, Jeff Davis is a Folk Harbour favourite who helps us stay true to these roots. A Lifetime Friend of the Festival and the musician who has appeared at more Festivals than anyone else, Jeff is a walking encyclopedia of traditional American folk music. He is also an accomplished fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandocello, bones, and jaw harp player. His performances include fascinating background information about the songs he has collected from fishers, farmers, and folk living in all corners of America. Jeff is always entertaining in his own performances, he adds much to circles and workshops, and he is the perfect host for this year’s Folk Steps, which is exploring old-time and bluegrass music.
