The National Council for the Traditional Arts stated:
“With few exceptions, the piano does not play a prominent part in Americana or traditional music, and is rarely the lead instrument. But Jeff Little is an exception – and a remarkable one. His distinctive style, much influenced by the flatpicked guitar tradition, is breathtaking in its speed, precision and clarity”.
National Public Radio stated: “Jeff Little is a remarkable musician, steeped in the tradition of his native Blue Ridge, yet also a virtuosic and eclectic innovator.
The Boston Globe also said: “Jeff Little tore the place apart with his wondrously quick and articulate piano style. He is tricky and playful, yet always intelligent and richly melodic.”
National Public Radio, PBS, National Council for the Traditional Arts, American Piano Masters Series, The Smithsonian Folklife Festival, and The American Folk Festival just to name a few. Jeff has also performed internationally including concerts in Sri Lanka, Oman, Tanzania, and France.
