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 role in Americana or Appalachian music and is rarely the lead instrument. But Jeff’s music is one of those rare exceptions. The pianist has not only been recognized as a critically acclaimed musician but also a true music innovator. Jeff's Trio includes Steve Lewis on guitar and banjo and Luke Little on mandolin.
DaShawn Hickman, from Mount Airy, N.C., opens the show. Hickman is one of today’s foremost players of Sacred Steel, a blues-gospel tradition started in the Pentecostal-Holiness churches of the 1930s. Hickman, along with his vocalist wife, Wendy, and bass player Charlie Hunter have put their own spin on Sacred Steel, and love to share their soulful sound.
