Jeff Little Trio (Band)


With few exceptions, the piano does not play a prominent part in Appalachian or Americana music, and is rarely the lead instrument. But Jeff Little is an exception – and a remarkable one. His distinctive two-handed style, much influenced by the mountain flat-picked guitar tradition, is breathtaking in its speed, precision and clarity.

Little’s involvement with fiddle tunes, old time country, and traditional blues dates to his growing up in Boone, North Carolina, where his family owned a music shop. The shop was a regular gathering place for musicians who would just stop by to pick a few tunes. At an early age Jeff would regularly sit in with many of the musicians from the region, including one of America’s most influential musicians: Doc Watson. A professional musician since the age of 14, Jeff is conversant with traditional old-time country, bluegrass, rockabilly and blues.

Joined by his two band mates Steve Lewis and Josh Scott, the trio performs across the country.

Steve Lewis is one of the most respected acoustic musicians in the country. Steve is well known for his flat picking on guitar and his mastery of the five string banjo. Steve has won many championships for his guitar and banjo playing.

Rounding out the trio is upright bass master Josh Scott. Josh is considered to be one of the most talented upright bass players and has been featured on stage and in the studio with many critically acclaimed artists of acoustic and Americana music.
